how to increase number of stack pages

by Lizzy In reply to how to increase number of ...

I assume you found the article at Microsoft telling you to increase the number of Stack Pages in the INI file because you are running an older program or hardware that requires more stack pages and gave you the error message that there were not enough stack pages. Then your program or hardware would just quit. The directions from Microsoft are correct in that you need to increase the stack pages in multiples of 4, 8, 12, 16, and so on. I have found that for JAWS users with DECtalk synthesizers on Windows 9x that 32 is a good number of stack pages. What the instructions don't tell you is that this feature is not always entered in the INI file as text--the default of 4 or 8 stack pages (I can't remember which it was but 4 sounds so low...) is UNDERSTOOD and therefore not entered in by default. Under the 386Enh section, type the line as given in the instructions and save the INI file, close it and reboot. You should be fine after that. If you need more info, email me via TechRepublic and I will give exact details when I get back to the office tomorrow AM.
thanks!

If the 386Enh section doesn't exist in system.ini all you have to do is create it. Remember to use [brackets]
