How do I remove a TSR from memory?

How do I remove a TSR from memory?

How do I remove a TSR from memory?


I created a TSR program which hooks an interrupt then returns control to DOS (remaining resident), later the program unhooks the interrupt and completely returns to DOS, however.... it does not release the memory. If I run it repeatedly, "mem" reports that the amount of free memory is slowly dropping. Is there any way to free this memory?


RE: How do I remove a TSR from memory?

Maybe the easy way is to allow your TSR only start once by specifying flag!


RE: How do I remove a TSR from memory?


You need to release all memory you use, including the PSP.
