Stack overflow at line 598


Stacks are reserved memory that programs use to process hardware events. A stack overflow occurs when there is not enough space in memory to run the hardware interrupt routines. To resolve these behaviors, you can modify the "STACKS=" line in the Config.sys file, eliminate terminate-and-stay-resident program (TSRs), and eliminate hardware conflicts.

When Windows delivers an error message that is related to an internal stack overflow, there is not enough space in memory either set aside or available to handle the calls that are made to the computer hardware. There are several things to consider when you troubleshoot this behavior:
  1. The Config.sys startup file may not be properly configured for the Windows installation. Use the following values: STACKS=64,512 ;(this is the maximum allowed)
    FILES=60
    BUFFERS=40 If you are using the dual-boot capabilities in Windows, the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files may not contain the correct configuration to run Windows. When you are dual-booting between Windows 3.x and Windows, these files may not have been renamed back to Config.dos and Autoexec.dos.

    Examine the Config.sys file to determine if files such as Himem.sys or Emm386.exe are loaded from a folder other than the Windows folder. If so, boot Windows by using the Safe Mode Command Prompt Only option. Rename the Config.sys file to Config.dos and the Autoexec.bat file to Autoexec.dos, and then restart your computer.
  2. Some TSRs may be interfering with Windows. Disable any non-boot device drivers in the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files. If you install from Windows 3.x and you receive a stack overflow error message, check the Win.ini and System.ini files for non-Windows-based programs or drivers that are loading.
  3. There may be an incompatible hardware configuration. Check the port and IRQ settings of the network adapter, sound card, and modem. Make sure that there are no COM2/COM4 or COM1/COM3 conflicts and that no devices are sharing IRQs. Disable or remove conflicting devices.
  4. The computer may need a BIOS upgrade. Check the BIOS version and contact the manufacturer of your computer for information about a BIOS upgrade.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day

What is the mean auto exe c bat in dos files??


An AUTOEXEC.BAT file contains MS-DOS commands which are executed automatically when a Personal Computer boots. This file is usually located in the root directory of the hard drive or floppy from which the computer boots (or starts) up. The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is used to set various default settings and to run programs that should be executed upon startup. Below you will find a list of executable statements (commands) that typically go into an AUTOEXEC.BAT file, along with explanations their.


The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is one form of a batch file, and it is used to automate functions in MS-DOS. In their simplest form, batch files contain MS-DOS commands (batch file language) which includes commands for such things as loops and execution branches and the like.
ECHO
Example: @ECHO OFF
This optional command will suppress the display of subsequent commands while the AUTOEXEC.BAT file is being executed

What is best website to show me dos programming examples.. want to creat an exe file to pick up text files from a directory and send them to a printer whenever a new file appears .(without pc...


you mean a .bat file that can be run when a new file is added. let me see if i can find a good site for you.
http://www.chebucto.ns.ca/~ak621/DOS/BatBasic.html
My advice is get a good book! One that stands out in my mind is "The Waite Group's MS-DOS Bible" (1991?) This will take you through using the command shell and batch files through how the DOS filesystem is structured, memory managment under DOS, an explaination of how the OS loads a program up to wrting little progams of you own using machine language and debug.
Another great book is Dan Gookin's "Advanced MS-DOS Batch File Programming" that will also teach you something about operating systems in general in a nice, unformal tone.
DOS also comes with a BASIC interpreter called QBASIC, that can teach you the funamentals of programming while augmenting your shell scripts and doing things that plain batch files just can't do.

The printer cannot be set to a page length when printing from a dos program. The page length is incorrect but changes with every print even though the same file is printed


Prints from DOS programs do not have a "page length" setting of their own, nor do dot matrix printer have a page length of their own.

Page feed is achieved by sending a special control code (^L), and the meaning of ^L can be set through specific escape codes that the DOS program has to know.

My guess is that you need to tell the DOS program the page size in lines or inches, and maybe instruct it to send a page feed command after each page.

You can try directly programming the printer, but if the DOS program is sending out the wrong codes, this is not going to help. Anyway, here goes. Good luck!

Posted by rhung33 on Jan 16, 2009 Under Window DOS prompt and Unix Sun Solaris 8 Station , using LPR -p command to print txt file to cause Lexmark T644 printer '' Flushing buffer '' and...


The printer can't handle the data it received and flush it out of its buffer. Goto Menu->Settings->Postscript Settings and turn "Print PostScript Erro" on. When the same print job prints, you should get a page printed out telling you what the printer doesn't like. You may also want to try forcing the printer into Postscript mode. Your PS file probably contains a PJL to set the device to PS mode before it prints. When the printer expects PCL data and received PS data(or vise versa), you can get this behaviour

TAPE detection


Tape detection is probably a result of having installed MSBackup. When you installed MSBackup it installs three virtual device drivers one or more of which is causing you your start-up problems. I would suggest removing or renaming the following files to stop tape detection at startup.
drvwq117.vxd
drvwppqt.vxd
drvwcdb.vxd
You might also want to remove/rename:
pnpwfdc.inf
pnpwide.inf
pnpwtape.inf
pnpwppt.inf
Boot Log Analyzer should tell you which of the above vxds is causing you your problems; I seem to recall that the usual culprit is drvwq117.vxd.
