When I try to compile Citect I get the error "Out of File Handles" or Cannot Open PGSIZEMV.DBF. 

This only happens if you are using Windows V3.1 and have not setup SHARE correctly. Citect version 3.0 opens more files when compiling than previous versions and requires larger buffers in SHARE. To fix this you will have to add the DOS program SHARE to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. Use the following Parameters.

C:\DOS\SHARE.EXE /F:4096 /L:120

If you experience the same problem and are running Windows for Workgroups V3.11 please contact Citect Support. If you are running Windows for Workgroups 3.11 you do not need SHARE in you AUTOEXEC.BAT file as Windows provides this service.
