Q37566: CodeView Unexpectedly Exits to DOS
Article: Q37566 Product(s): See article Version(s): 2.10 2.20 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 8-APR-1990 When debugging a program with CodeView, certain operations cause it to exit to DOS without giving any warning or error message. Some of the things that cause this behavior are trying to access help, setting a watch variable, and returning from a DOS shell. This problem occurs because not enough file handles are being allocated at boot time with "files=XX" in CONFIG.SYS. An error message is printed, but then over written before most people can see it. The solution is to make sure files are set to 20 in CONFIG.SYS.
