Windows XP, Compaq, Error COMIX/1001

I have a Windows XP at my place for personal use.Since Im working in a Solicitor Co my work is in normally  DOS based programs.Now i copied files related to the program to my personal PC but whenever i try to run the program it does open but after entering the sub-menu it shows the Error COMIX/1001 and quits the program.Please suggest a remedy so that i can use the same program at my home.
Error COMIX/1001  Open error: D:\MMDATA\MMESRT.DBF
                   < DOS ERROR 4 >
 
              QUIT       RETRY    DEFAULT

When you copied the files, did you make sure to register any dll's that you may have on your work pc?

DOS error 4 indicates that there are not enough file handles.
Edit the file: c:\windows\system32\config.nt

Find the files setting and change it. It will look like this:

files=40

It may be a different number. Whatever the number, increase it.

Thanks samiam41.  

Since Burjese's time zone  is almost 12:00 hours ahead of mine, I guess we won't know if that worked until tomorrow.
