You don't need File Control Blocks under NT. NT has a different way of dealing with open files than Dos used to. Why do you need FCB's?

We are trying to migrate a Dos legacy system using Btrieve databases to an NT environment.  When running a large report that creates temporary files we get the error:"FCB Unavailable","Abort,Fail"

The only place that you could possibly set this would be by editing the file config.nt and placing your FCBS line there and trying it again.

No problem sir. Please make sure you test this because under NT strange things have been known to happen when you make adjustments to the Dos environment.

Good Luck!
