ME and files=

By aoop ·
A dos application requires 200 open files on the client machine and ME comes set with files=10 in the config.sys in the EBD folder. Changing that config.sys to files=250 does nothing to correct the "too many open files" stop in the dos program. The Win. 95,98, NT, and 2000 client machines are no problem in that I change the files= setting in the proper place. My problem is that I can not locate the "proper place" in ME. Any suggestions appreciated.

From the Start->Run, type in msconfig and choose the Environment Tab in the System Configuration Utility dialog box. Click on New.. and type in FILES in the Varible Name, 250 in the Variable Value then click O.K. Make sure that the box next to your new variable is checked and restart your system.
Hope this helps you out, Jerry

I thank you and I had tried this approach. The entry is accepted, but the dos program still halts on too many open files. I made similar entries in every area that the other operating systems accessed, then gave up and loaded Windows 2000 on the client set my files=250, rebooted, and gave the client computer back to the operator fully functional. Something about Me just doesn't seem to fit.

If you used the "FILES=200" in config.sys, what you need to do now is add the line PerVMFiles=200 to the [386Enh] section of the SYSTEM.INI file.
