DOS - Too Many Files Open Error by ramani
Posted: 5 Nov 01

WinMe - Setup to solve Too Many Files Open Error

Edit the system.ini file (windows directory)
Locate [386enh] section
   and add the following line

   PerVMFiles = 225

Save the file and then restart the WinME.

The maximum number you can use above is 225 while a lesser number enables only that many+30 files at a time to be opened as maximum file handles.

This is the Config.sys statement Files = nnn equivalent.
