This is expected behavior. On Windows, proGetStack will only work for ABL clients (GUI prowin, Appserver _proapsv, WebSpeed _progres) The %dlc%\bin\proGetStack.bat script calls _debugconfigure.exe which is enhanced to get 4GL Stack during runtime on demand against an ABL Client (_progres, _proapsv, prowin), provided the relevant pdbfiles are available in the Windows OpenEdge install directory.  For further information refer to Article:

On either Windows or Unix, progetstack does not support the PASOE multi-session agent (_mproapsv). Stack information for a specific session is available through JMX, OE Manager (oemanager.war), or the REST API.  For further information refer to Article:
