415 Cannot open overlay file
Explanation: This error occurs when a CA-Clipper application cannot
find or open an overlay file. Overlay files include executable (.EXE)
files (in the case of dynamic overlays), and static overlay (.ovl)
files. Probably the most common cause of this error is insufficient
file handles available to the CA-Clipper application.
Action: Some suggestions to resolve the problem are:
1. The first step in trying to solve this problem is to increase the
number of file handles available to the application. refer to the
Files and Buffers section in "The Runtime Environment" chapter of the
Programming and Utilities guide.
2. If an insufficient number of file handles is not the problem, it is
possible that the CA-Clipper application cannot find the file it is
trying to open. It is possible that another file of the same name as
the executable is in the DOS path and is being searched for the
overlay. Try renaming the executable.
