Since then I've had a few requests to post the AUTOEXEC.BAT and
CONFIG.SYS files that I use, so here goes.      

Here are the important parts of the AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files
I use when running Windows:

__________________________________________________________________________
AUTOEXEC.BAT

C:\WINDOWS\SMARTDRV.EXE
PATH C:\WINDOWS;C:\;  etc. etc....  <N.B. APL2 directory is not in the path>
... lots of other stuff
__________________________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________________________
CONFIG.SYS

device=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
device=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE noems
dos=high,umb
device=c:\dos\ansi.sys
files= 30
buffers=20
SHELL=C:\DOS\COMMAND.COM C:\DOS\ /e:700 /p
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\SMARTDRV.EXE /DOUBLE_BUFFER
STACKS=9,256
__________________________________________________________________________

I run APL2/PC from a .pif file which calls the following batch file  
(which I call APL2WIN.BAT):

__________________________________________________________________________
APL2WIN.BAT

c:\apl2\APL2FONT
APL232 LL AP2 AP80 AP101 AP103 AP120 AP124 AP207 AP210 AP211 AP440
c:\apl2\APL2FONT /T
__________________________________________________________________________

Although all these APs load up, I don't think that all of them can be used.
For example, I normally use the PROFILE ws (which reprograms the function
keys and which I believe requires AP120), but trying to include it on the
command line as I normally do (by putting the command )LOAD PROFILE at the
end of the list of APs) brings the system down.  Similarly, once you're in,
trying to execute the full-screen editor EDIT2 crashes the system. The
other, less sophisticated editor, EDIT, will, however, work.  I don't think
that any of the GRAPHPAK workspaces can be used either.  

Fiddling around with the .pif file settings didn't seem to affect anything
at all.  All I could get was about 1.8Mb of workspace area.  I'm not sure
how to get an ASCII listing of the .pif file to post here, but using the
default should probably work.
