Q. What the maximum handles that can be used on NT (including Win2000, etc.) ?

A. The MSDN says:

Windows NT/2000 and Windows 95/98: The maximum number of files that an application can open is determined by the amount of available non-paged memory pool, because each open file handle requires non-paged memory.
There is also a limit of 10,000 handles per process.
