I need to increase the default stack size on 32-bit Windows 7 ultimate.As I know there are two ways to increase stack size on Linux, executing command " ulimit -s size " and changing limits.conf file. Is there some similar method for Windows 7 operating system ?

    most of the time when i see "i need to do x" its just that the person does not know how to fix the real problem and just wants to sidestep it. so, whats your real problem (the one that leads you to think to increase the stacksize permanently)? – akira Sep 27 '11 at 3:36

changing the stacksize for a program can be changed by using the editbin command (part of visual studio):

$ editbin /STACK:reserve[,commit] program.exe
