Old Medical Management Program - OMS (AOS) - runs off Foxpro for DOS "Too Many Files Open"

  I recently copied the directory for OMS onto a machine running Win XP Home.
  It was running 95, and the user had a DOS - based Medical Management program
  called, OMS otherwise known as AOS.
  When I run the program, it seems to load, then announces, "too many files open"
  and ceases to work - the DOS window locks up.
  IF I had to take a guess, I'd say I'd have to throw in a file= value to allow the program
  breathing room.
  But where do I do this?  And am I on the right track???

  Thanks!!!!

check out config.nt in system32.  That should be where you can increase the number of files.
