Out of memory issue with multiple tasks

Does anyone know of a quick way to increase the number of processes that can be
run in the background? I need to have a large number of copies of a small
utility listening at the same time and, with no applications running, I can
achieve 62 instances of the utility before I get the message below ("gentask"
is the name of the script):

./gentask: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable

Snippets of information from Cygcheck are attached below.

Thank you very much in advance.
