Out of environment space
Explanation: The program or command you are trying to run cannot execute because DOS has run out of room in its "environment", a place where system settings are stored.
Diagnosis: The default environment that DOS uses to hold settings and DOS variables is small--only 256 bytes. Some programs can cause DOS to run out of space in this area by trying to create more variables that there is no more room for. A long PROMPT or PATH statement will take up more room.
