Open Files in Windows similar to DOS

Hello,

I am tracking down a problem with my computer and a program, and it seems to be related to too many open files at a given time. In DOS, we used to increase the number of open files by adding the Files= parameter in DOS. Can something similar to this be done in Windows 7 or 2008? How can you tell Windows to be able to have more open files at a given time similar to the files=command?

Thanks,
John

I believe it is the same, create a file called config.nt and add files=99 to it.  Place in %systemroot% and try it

Interesting. so the file should be config.nt. I will give it a try. Do you know what Windows 7 or Windows 2008 defaults to?

I'm not really sure, possibly 32?  I don't remember where I read that so don't hold me to it.
