I am using an older program whose source code I cannot see. I am using the cmd.exe console in windows xp. The program ran with no problems on an xp machine last year, while a stack overflow code 2000 error was observed on a different xp machine (easy fix - use the machine that works). I tried running the program on the previously working machine lately, and now am getting the same error. No changes to the os were made and I did not change the service pack version.

Any ideas on how to get around this stack overflow error so I can use the program? Dosbox will at least open the program, however it does not run to completion.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Maybe try disassembling it and looking at the code?
