used to free up conventional memory (instead of "share") according to http://www.empowermentzone.com/w31tips.txt
Diese Datei gab es schon bei Windows 3.1 und war der Ersatz für die Datei Share.exe. Nano
Per "support.microsoft.com": Many Windows-based applications that support OLE 2.0 require file-sharing and file-locking capabilities to be enabled. This is accomplished by loading VSHARE.386 in the [386Enh] section of the SYSTEM.INI file or by loading SHARE.EXE in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.  See also: Link Henry
