    Hello, from time to time I get a pop box that states:

    Stack Overflow at line72

    I remember that some time ago I would get a msg similar and someone told me to go somewhere in my program and add more stacks, can someone give me some help on this.

    Thanks:confused:

    I assume you're running a program you've written, as it's highly unusual for commercial software to have such an error.

    There is generally only one stack per process, and its size is dependent on the OS. There is no practical way to change the size of the stack.

    Most of the time, a stack overflow is caused by out-of-control recursion. In rare cases, a very large program with LOTS of nested function calls and passed parameters may exhaust the stack.
