Crystal Reports 8.5: Error: Too many open files
Posted on 2009-04-08
I have a windows service which opens crystal reports, creates the reports and then exports it to pdf. based on certain data.
We had a release recently in which there are multiple reports that can be generated at once.
After this, sometimes we get an error that says " too many open files" causing the application to fail. The reports are generated one after the other, but still there could be multiple threads doing this.
We are not sure if there is a limit in crystal to create files, or why this issue is occurring.
Could anyone help us in letting us know why this could be occurring and also how this could be resolved.
Thanks in advance.
