That means Emm386 is in Memory Conflict with some hardwares in your computer. Use the X switch to exclude the memory address from emm386

It also depends on the code the is displayed as to what the problem is.

EMM386 Exception error #xx @ xxxx:xxxxxxxx CODE xxxx

The first two "xx" represent what the actual error is (divide, debugger, breakpoint, etc.

The next "xxxx" represent the Code Segment, then the 8 "x"'s are the instruction pointer . Both show where in memory the error accured.

What is the exact error the you had?

If you have a PCI network interface card in your computer you should use em386.exe Version 4.49 which is delivered with MS DOS 6.22
DOS 6.20 contains only EMM386.EXE version 4.48
/V for emm386.exe in config.sys displays the version during startup
With versions before 4.49 it is possible that your PC is hanging when load the network drivers

Use 'msd', microsoft debug to look at what sitting in the upper memory region from A0000 to FFFFF. Quarterdeck's 'mft' program is excellent for doing the look. You'll probable need a well placed 'exclusion' for the display card or the network card.
