Thread: No more file handles

    Default No more file handles

    I recently tried converting a program I developed and have been using for nearly 7 years under Microsoft Windows 98 to the new Windows operating system XP. I am using Alpha Four version 7.0. I get the error message no more file handles left when I am using dome of the function in Alpha Four. I remember I had to increase the file handles in the config.sys to 99 under window 98. I don't know how to get the computer to recoginize the config.sys under Windows XP. Any ideas?

    If you search the forum you will find a number of times this has been resolved.

    In XP, it's config.nt not config.sys and it's in the windows directory.

    Find it on your system and modify that file.

    That was the answer.
