Has anyone else run into this issue when trying to get pure-ftpd to work?

      9 [main] pure-ftpd 3032 C:\OGP\usr\sbin\pure-ftpd.exe: *** fatal
error in forked process - fork: can't reserve memory for parent stack
0x1B0000 - 0x3B0000, (child has 0x140000 - 0x340000), Win32 error 487

      9 [main] pure-ftpd 2936 fork: child -1 - forked process 3032

Full stack trace from log:

I get the reserve memory error when a FTP connection to pure-ftpd is
opened.  pure-ftpd immediately crashes with the above error and the
FTP connection is never established.  I have installed pure-ftpd the
same way on a Windows Server 2008 SP2 x86 instance and a Windows 7 x86
instance.  I run into the same error on each, and each machine has
plenty of RAM available.  Other packages aren't doing this.  It
happens with the built-in anonymous user along with any new users that
eventually are added in /etc/pureftpd.passwd

Setup.exe version 2.876 (32 bit)
pure-ftpd version installed is 1.0.43-1

Anyone have any clue what the issue is?  There is no log entry in
/var/log and I see pure-ftpd.exe running as a process... it just
crashes every time a connection is opened.
