    What are Stack Pages and how do I increase them? I am supposed to increase the setting of 'MinSPs' in SYSTEM. INI. according to the error message, but I can't find any of those details in the Help menus. I have 6 Sps allocated and I need more although I don't know why.

    Click on Start>Run key in sysedit and press enter. Locate the title bar that reads "C:\Windows\System.ini" and single left click on it to bring it to the forefront.

    Scroll down to the [386Enh] section and add the line below to the [386Enh] section of the System.ini file.

    MinSPs=4

    Close the window and be sure to save the changes when prompted. Restart Windows.

    If you still get the error then change the line to MinSPs=8.

    Let us know what happens.

    Thanks Bryan.

    It seems to have done the trick but I had to increase the pages to 12, but it's only about 4KB per page so it should be OK.

    Thanks again.
