Win95 Resources

Is it possible to increase resources? In Win 3.1 GDI and User were fixed to 64kb blocks. I assume this was fixed in 95, but alas we need more (esp. GDI)...

Is it possible to increase this (no not by restarting...) by altering code, registry settings, patches?? If so, HOW? Is it possible to increase the memory allocated, or is this "hardwired" into the OS?

This is still a limiting problem simply for backward compatibility. Your 32Bit applications are not limited to this\because they write/access memory differently to win3.1. 16Bit applications will however still be limited. If you are writting a program, write it in 32bits. Win9x will handle the memory segment allocation and not be limited to the 64KB blocks. 16bit code is he limiting factor here.
