Parameters

none.


Switches
-h (NT2000)
-? (NT2000)
Displays Help for the command.
-c (NT2000)
Enables conditional emulation. Floating-point emulation is forced on only if the system detects the Pentium processor floating-point division error at start time. If you select this switch, you must restart the computer for the changes to take effect.
-f (NT2000)
Enables forced emulation. Floating-point hardware is disabled and floating-point emulation is always forced on, regardless of whether the system exhibits the Pentium processor floating-point division error. This switch is useful for testing software emulators and for working around floating-point hardware defects known to the operating system. If you select this switch, you must restart the computer for the changes to take effect.
-o (NT2000)
Disables forced emulation and reenables floating-point hardware if it is present. If you select this switch, you must restart the computer for the changes to take effect.
