/Ge (Enable Stack Probes)

Activates stack probes for every function call that requires storage for local variables.

Syntax

/Ge

Remarks

This mechanism is useful if you rewrite the functionality of the stack probe. It is recommended that you use /Gh (Enable _penter Hook Function) instead of rewriting the stack probe.

/Gs (Control Stack Checking Calls) has the same effect.

/Ge is deprecated; beginning in Visual Studio 2005, the compiler automatically generates stack checking. For a list of deprecated compiler options, see Deprecated and Removed Compiler Options in Compiler Options Listed by Category.
