Borland C++
When port a program from one computer to another, got this error message on the new computer:

Floating point error: Stack Fault
Abormal program Termination

The program runs perfectly under the old computer.  

Any reasons why?

Tell me first which version of Borland C++ you use (windows/dos),
did you run it under Windows ???
Which computer is the old one (286) and the new one ??
Which instructions did you use...
etc..

I think I know the answer (It happend to me too, several times)
Try to initialise the floating point values.
If you're programming in protected mode, you could turn off all floating points bits of the _control87 variable. (This worked for me)..

btw.. If you reject this answer, please mention the questions I asked at the top of this answer..
