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?
