Setting Files For a DOS program in XP Pro
Posted on 2004-08-09
This is a similar question to others asked so I appologize for repetition. I have just installed Windows XP Pro and I am testing a corporate app written in DBase IV (Very old) which has run successfuly up to and including Windows 98. In Windows 98 the Config.sys file contains Files=100 and works fine.
I have made the corresponding change per the help in c:\windows\system32\config.nt to include files=100 and when I test one of the program areas where I know a large number of files are required, the message displayed is "too many files are open"..
From previous experience, if the corresponding item is active, this should work. Is it possible, that the Config.nt is not being executed or I am I missing something?
