I use an older COBOL compiler, "mbp", which has a  huge (26K)  file  of just one line with all the
compile-time error messages. At the end of a compile  (in the DOS partition)
 In Windows 98, 2000 and XP the compier chokes when trying to access this file with a message
"I/O ERR ON FILE ERRMSG.DAT".  

Are there any ways to increase FCBs or other resources in Windows DOS partitions so that the
compilermight be able to open this file?

Also right click on the DOS shortcut and go over te settings there.
