DOS File Handles Under XP

  Rob White 13:05 31 Jan 2003

Trying to run an old Clipper DOS program under XP.
It needs 200 file handles. In old versions of Windows file=200 in config.sys did the trick. In WindowsME PerVMfiles=200 in the [386Enh] section of System.ini did the trick. What can I do in XP to avoid DOS Error 4?

Change the files= in the file windows\system32\config.nt
