For those of you that experience this error message when starting Orion2v140:
DOS/16M error:  system software does not follow VCPI or DPMI specifications
There is a simple solution. Edit your autoexec2.nt file (in C:\windows\system32 folder typically) and remove 'lh' from one or two of the lines in the file. The error occurs because you are out of high memory and dosx did not load because of that.
