I viewed, that the DOS version of Fasm uses only conventional memory for additional_memory, which may be enough for most purposes, but not to compile the Fasm Win32 IDE, which needs more than ~80000h bytes of additional_memory.

I fixed my version of Fasm (DOS) in a way which is similar to the LINUX/Windows version:
It now uses 3/8 of available xms for additional_memory (which is much more than conv. memory can provide) and the remaining 5/8 for the other memory.

It falls back to the current allocation strategy if less than 4Mb were detected.

A shot in the dark: Try using CWDPMI extender.

This is already implemented since 1.51 - DOS version checks whether it could gain more memory for the additional block by dividing the extended memory and in such case does it.
