Hi;

It used to be that you could increase the environment space an app from dos had ( ie tomcat )

You used to do this by rightlicking the dos icon on the dos window and going to "properties".

I can't find this option in windows 2000.

Where did it go?

According to this article, it's the same in 2000 as NT. See details here:

YOu can always specify the "default" environment for DOS in the CONFIG file (config.nt or config.sys).

More detail:

a) I can confirm that in Win2K Pro and Server both you can
   still right click on DOS exe application and set these
   values in the memory tab.

b) There are SOME ms-dos applications that I have seen
   that are "integrated" to run in Windows a bit better.
   Some of these DONT have the DOS related tabs under
   properties.

   Most notably I saw this last night when I was trying
   to install a game in my son's computer at home and it
   had that exact problem.

If the DOS app doesn't show these values, try setting the SHELL= command in your CONFIG.SYS file .

shell=%systemroot%\system32\cmd.com /e:xxx

Where xxx is # of bytes. A good number is 2048. Default is much lower. Max is 32767. (32KB)

Note it's cmd.com, not command.com,..
