windows 7 xp mode running accpac error number of files exceeded RRS feed

  • Question

  • Attempting to run accpac under windows 7 virtual pc xp mode.  I have overcome several

    problems (assigning parallel port to a shared usb port with w7 using net use lpt1:...,

    and several other issues to pass an internal pre going live test).  After going live

    worked for several 16 bit programs that we use (clipper based) however, now have what

    could be a game stopper problem.  While running accounts payable of accpac (vesion 6.x or

    something) and after printing cheques and advice and on second part to print out

    summarized entries received an error like:   "cannot proceed over open files limit of

    operating system".  This surprised me as we have been running for years this same

    application under Windows XP.  I had to put back the original machine and before

    returning the new machine, I wanted to know of any fixes or suggestions.

     

    Thank you
