View Full Version : Spawn Problems

10-30-2002, 06:32 AM
This is my first post so hello everybody.

Right down to the good stuff. I am having major headaches with spawn :( . We have a system that opens about 18 files and needs to keep them open. However when these files are open I cant make a program spawn it reports too many files.

So I added code to increase the DOS handle count from 20 up to 50 using interrupt 21 function 67 thinking this would allow it to work. But, it didnt.... after writing a small test routine to check stuff out it appears once i open 15 files i cannot spawn anymore child processes even with the interrupt call. :mad:

So my question is, is there a limit in the spawn function and should the interrupt call change it.

Sorry for the long post but I have to tell someone.:rolleyes:
