/Ge (Enable Stack Probes)

 

The new home for Visual Studio documentation is Visual Studio 2017 Documentation on docs.microsoft.com.

The latest version of this topic can be found at -Ge (Enable Stack Probes).

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

/Ge  

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; the compiler will generate stack checking. For more information, see Deprecated Compiler Options in Visual C++ 2005.
