Stack pages are just reserved memory spaces that windows uses for
housekeeping chores. Most programs use stacks to keep variables and other
transient information in... And if you run out, programs don't work. Just
adding more space to the stacks should fix things. And that information
should be in the HELP file. :)

Don't know much about it but it has to do with memory I think.
If you look in your help it tells you about it.
I got it once on this new ME and had it on my old one and had to change it
in that but Dell didn't have me do it in ME.

Subject: [Computers] STACK PAGES
Hi listers, my machine has given me the following message twice in the last
two days: 'There are no spare stack pages; it may be necessary to create new
ones in 'Minsp' in system. There are currently 5 stack pages'
I think that's what it said, but it threw me a bit, as I never had this
warning before, and like a fool, I didn't write it down. I will next time!
Can anyone throw any light on this message, and whether it presents a
problem or not?
Thanking all in advance
