    Default win3.11 'No more file handles'

    We are still running win3.11 on some machines (you can't beat it for speed) but have recently run into a problem.

    Development is done on a win95 machine and after some changes to the sets we got the "no more file handles" mssg in win3.11 but A4 runs fine under win95.

    We are running a4 6.2, config.sys files=254, buffers =20. Is there anything in the system.ini 386Enh section that would address this problem similar to the fix posted for windoes ME?

    Sincerely,
    Jack.

    You may need to use the PIF editor under windows and verify that ALPHA4#.PIF file contains 16384 under the XMS Memory fields under KB Requirements and KB Limit. I've attached a copy of this screen for you to look at.

    Jack:
    just edit the config sys file.
    increase or add the statements
    files=99
    buffers=20

    I have played with the various settings in the PIF file with no avail. Any other suggestions are welcome.
