  • FILES statement on network

    Does Windows 95/98 handle file handles the same way
    that DOS does on the server? I have a Btrieve
    application that needs about 30 files handles
    so the maximum terminals would be 8 x 30 = 240.
    Lantastic has a way to allocate 5200 handles by
    bypassing CONFIG.SYS. Is it possible or necessary
    to allocate more than 255 handles on a a Windows 95/98
    network? I know that files can be closed to free
    handles, but the system has run extremely fast
    and reliable for many years without closing them.
