I am only able to launch 28 simultaneous Robo-FTP services on Windows 2000

Robo-FTP Enterprise Edition allows you to run an unlimited number of simultaneous instances -- either launched as applications, services, or a combination of both.

However, by default Windows limits the number of services a user can launch.

These numbers are approximate because there are additional factors that can affect the total number of services that Windows will allow on a particular system.

You will need to change a registry setting manually (using regedit) to increase this limit.

WARNING: Edit the registry at your own risk.

Here is the registry key you will need to change:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\SubSystems\Windows

This key has a value named SharedSection that you will need to modify. Below are some example settings.

SharedSection=1024,3072,512,512 -- Default value - allows 28 services MAX  
SharedSection=1024,3072,256,256 -- Allows you to run 58 Services MAX  
SharedSection=1024,3072,128,256 -- Allows you to run 120 Services

After the MAX services running is reached, no other services will run under USER context. Services still can be run under the LocalSystem account though.

Note: Robo-FTP version 3.8 and later does not run on Windows 2000
