You are giving at an 8K stack. Do you need this much? Try cutting it on half (/ST:4096).
You should look at the map to determine the total size of your data segment so that you can see how much smaller you need to make the stack.
You might also concider compiling your program in another memory model.
Keep in mind that no single data item can be greater than 64K in any model other than HUGE.
It sounds like you are probably using small model now and need to convert to COMPACT.
