Show “Run in Separate Memory Space” option (For Current User).

This tweak controls the display of "Run in Separate Memory Space" option in the Run box, which allows you to run 16-bit programs in a dedicated Virtual DOS Machine (VDM) process.

Tweak for : Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
The DOS and 16-bit programs run on Windows 2000 in the Virtual DOS Machine program. It provides 16-bit environment with DLLs also. 16-bit programs run as threads in a single and shared VDM process by default. They share the memory space allocated to the VDM process and therefore, they cannot run simultaneously.

If this tweak is enabled, then the checkbox for “Run in Separate Memory Space” appears on the Run dialog box. It gives users the option of running a 16-bit program in its own dedicated NTVDM process. The additional check box is enabled only when a user enters a 16-bit program in the Run dialog box.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a DWORD value “MemCheckBoxInRunDlg” in the right panel, if this value does not exist.

Now, right-click and modify its value to “1” to show the option. However, if you want to show the original state, change the value data to “0” or delete the added value.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
