My suggestion would be to create a shortcut for the DOS application.  In the properties for the app, change the command line to "command /e:4096 /c <command>", without the quotes, and substituting <command> with the command used to start the program.  This will guarantee the program has enough environment space, while conserving RAM for any other DOS programs that you run (they won't have an extra large environment hanging around)
