GEM Desktop Publisher 2.x

GEM Desktop Publisher, from Digital Research, is a GEM 3.x based Desktop publishing program. It is not as sophisticated as Ventura Publisher. It uses a VMM (Virtual Memory Manager) in place of EMS/XMS, and requires a hard disk. It can be used with GEM Artline to provide illustrations.

Installation instructions

To install, run INSTALL.APP from within GEM 3.

A large amount of conventional memory must be free before Desktop Publisher will run. Disable any unnecessary devices and memory resident programs to free enough space. The MS-DOS utility MEMMAKER can be used to optimize conventional memory. Memory usage statistics can be checked with the MEM command under DOS.
