Regarding the internals of a QXL.WIN disk, I documented that at there's a table at the end with host file sizes and the resulting internal block size.

I wanted to understand if there are limits to creating files within a .win

The directory entry contains a file_length field, it is a 32 bit longword. This allows for files to be up to 2^^32 -1 bytes in size, in theory. It all depends if the internals of SMSQ etc deal in signed or unsigned numbers.

2^^32 - is big! 4,096 Mb or 4 Gb.
