Runtime Error Codes

***Challenge UPDATED***
I need a list of the runtime error codes and their possible causes.

At this point, I have a runtime error 004 in a DOS windows under Windows NT.

Other times a runtime error 005 pops up

Some replies received, but none will solve the problem.
ok - the program works FINE under DOS, WIN95/98 etc. Even on a workstation running
NOVELL 32-bit client.
BUT when I run a "CMD" DOS box under WINDOWN NT 4 SERVER, I get a RUNTIME 004 error
It has to do with file handles I'm sure.
But how the HECK!!! do I fix it or create a DOS box in NT that will allow more file handles.

hi ultipos,

the number of open files at a time is managed by the FILES parameter in the config.sys (DOS) or in the config.nt (NT)

For your dos session under NT, edit (or create) the \WINNT\SYSTEM32\Config.NT file and add "FILES=200"

4 Too many open files  caused by Reset, Rewrite, Append

You are probably opening files without closing something.  There is a limit on the number of files that you can open.  When finished with a file close it.

5 File access denied

Caused by Reset, Append, Rewrite, Rename, MkDir, RmDir and others

Probably Reset, Append, Rewrite, Rename in your case.  You may be trying to open a file that you have already opened.

Has anyone noticed this, but any time I download someones procedures that use disk access, they never, ever, close the file? How hard is it to type close? Just makes me want to smack them sometimes.

Runtime errors for what compiler/version? If Turbo Pascal, once into IDE, press Shift-F1, go to "error,messages" and then go to "Runtime errors". The full list is there.

Those are the same nasty guys that rename a file (under VB) with a SHELL statement. ~~~~~>:(

Hi Mate
Yeah - in the end this was the solution
Weird thing is that I DID try this without success and then 'all of a sudden" memory just opened up to me.

I created PIF's and set their properties and pointed them to alternate config.nt files etc, to no avail

I increased "file=" in config.nt from 50 to 100 to 150 and then JUMPED to 1024. No sucess!
HA!!!!

Then I came back to 200 after reading your comment and when I went in, VOILA!!!! I had 500k available for the program. Bloomin' weitd

I deleted my pif's and alternate config.nt's and all seems ok now.

At some stage I will check which "files=" values are effective. In the maentime I have a few LAN's to get out with my software!

Thanks anyway buddy - your comments pointed gave me a perspective.

Regards

Please, your formal question was this:

>>I need a list of the runtime error codes and their possible causes. <<


¿Could you tell me, please, where's the answer?

Briefly, add the entry
files=200
in \winnt\system32\config.nt
