 DPMI Host Is Only Stand-Alone Host to Support Virtual Memory,


Distributed Free of Charge to Registered Users via Bulletin Board
 SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Quarterdeck Office Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: QDEK) announced today the availability of Quarterdeck's DOS Protected Mode Interface (DPMI) Host, a companion product to the company's QEMM-386, the PC industry's leading memory management software. The Quarterdeck DPMI Host is compatible with Microsoft's C/C++ Development System (version 7), Borland's C++ (version 3) and Intel's Code Builder Kit (version 1.1). It is the only stand-alone DPMI host to support virtual memory, which allows programs to access more memory than is physically present on the computer. DPMI is an industry-standard way for DOS programs to run in protected mode.
 "Now developers can write protected mode DOS programs that will be compatible with DOS, DR-DOS, Windows, OS/2, 386-based UNIX, DESQview or DESQview/X operating environments," said Gary Pope, Quarterdeck's co-founder and executive vice president of development. "This is consistent with Quarterdeck's philosophy of supporting emerging industry standards."
 The Quarterdeck DPMI Host requires Quarterdeck's QEMM-386, or Quarterdeck's DESQview-386 or DESQview/X, each of which includes QEMM. The DPMI Host fully supports running multiple DPMI programs inside Quarterdeck's DESQview products.
 The Quarterdeck DPMI Host is a full implementation of version 0.9 of the DPMI specification, including MS-DOS extensions. DPMI defines a standard software interface for allocating the full range of extended memory to 16- and 32-bit protected mode programs on Intel 286, 386 and 486 processors. The DPMI Specification was developed by a consortium of computer companies, including Quarterdeck, Borland, Ergo, IBM, Intel, Intelligent Graphics, Locus, Lotus, Microsoft, Phar Lap, Phoenix Technologies and Rational Systems.
 Quarterdeck will make the DPMI Host available to registered Quarterdeck users at no cost through the company's user bulletin board system (BBS): 310-396-3227. On-line documentation is also available. In addition to the company's BBS, QEMM users will be able to download the new host from Compuserve, BIX, Genie, Internet (including UUCP sites), SmartNet (through the Sound of Music board), Rimenet (through Running Board) and the DESQview Support File Distribution Network (FIDONET). Users who require packaging and hard copy documentation may order the DPMI Host directly from Quarterdeck sales, 800-354-3222 for $30; no charge to Quarterdeck Passport Support subscribers.
