[NTDEV] stack in Kernal mode Drivers

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
hi all,
I have written a NDIS miniport driver but i saw a system crash. iu
debugged the driver
and came to know that the stack was overflowing. I am surprised that the
softice did not show any kind of Stack overflow indications.It just showed
the the usual black screen saying "break due to page fault".
1> I need to know that has somebody encountered a similar problem.
2> Are there any settings that has to be done so that the softice shows
the stack Overflow.
3> How can we change the stack size in windows drivers....
