You must modify both the [SETTINGS] and [DRIVER_SETTINGS] portion of your assignment file.
It is important to correctly configure these settings to obtaim the best performance from UD6.
The correct value for $MAXFILES will depend on your operating system and configuration.
|Windows 95||In your config.sys file on the startup disk, there should be a line FILES=nn. The $MAXFILES parameter should be the same value. If no value exists, set it to 255 in both your assignment file and config.sys file..|
|Windows NT, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008||To determine the maximum number of open files, enter this command from an account with Administrator privilege:
|Unix||Consult your kernel parameters|
|VMS||Consult the SYSUAF setting.|
NOTE: It is not usually practical to set
$MAXFILES any higher than 2048. Uniface 7.2.06 does not allow this setting to be any larger than 9999.
$MAXFILES too low will result is slow performance, setting it too high will result in too much memory consumption. On windows a setting of 1024 is typical.
The following line must appear in your assignment file in the [DRIVER_SETTINGS] section to define which options the UD6/CMtool driver should enable. Uniface Six assignment files are often not broken into sections, in this case this line can appear anywhere in the assignment file.
USYS$UD6_PARAMS = option pack mhgfp140.dll, mmf files 255, config h:\uniface\usys72\bin\
mmf files setting cannot be greater than the
$MAXFILES setting, and is dependent on the amount of available memory. For a details of the
mmf files setting please see the Settings Reference.
config setting specifies where UD6/CMtool driver should find its configuration files (joins, overflows and binary). By default these files are installed into the same directory that the DLL is installed in. For UD6/CMtool to operate correctly you must ensure that the pathname is correct in the assignment file.
