#377 Exit to error: CPU_SetSegGeneral: Stack segment zero


I try to run a Clipper 5.3 program but I am getting the following error:
Exit to error: CPU_SetSegGeneral: Stack segment zero

I got no clue what is causing it. I tried to set core to normal etc. the same result.
What can I do about this error?

    core=normal should normally make clipper programs work.
    Are you sure the clipper program can find all the files it needs ?
    Otherwise you will have to debug the application to see what it is wrong.
    I doubt that it is a game, which is the target of DOSBox.

    Thanks for the comment @qbix79.
    I am 100% sure that all files are there in the folder, as it runs all right when run on 32bit machine without DOSBox.
    I tried core=normal with the same result.
    I heard that many people have successfully run Clipper programs on the DOSBox, thus I tried it myself. No luck thought. Maybe someone could share their config or share their knowledge on details how to exactly make it.
