colinux-daemon.exe does not start, instead it says there is a memory usage limit of zero MB. Setting the mem-parameter makes no change.

Cmdline output and error message:

    CoLinux can't run on machines with 4GB or more memory.

    Fixed in snapshot of version 0.7.2 (revision 800, 806)

    A workaround is to decrease the memory in C:\BOOT.INI by adding /maxmem=3968
