JSI Tip 0011 - IRPStackSize error.

After adding a device (or sometimes a service), you may get a system event indicating insufficient resources. Edit:

Change or add value: IRPStackSize REG_DWORD

The maximum value is C (12). You might want to try 7 but at least 2 more than the current value. If you are going to install Norton NT Utilities, this value should not exceed "A" (10) prior to installing.

See tip 153
