I followed the route given by the "crash message" but I want it off my machine. First let's be clear: Data Execution Prevention, or DEP, isn't something you "remove" or "get off your machine".
I followed the instructions and put the executables in the "exeptions" list, but DEP is still blocking my games.
Then i tried the following solution:(Run a command prompt as administrator.
If you're excluding older applications from DEP, you might also need to right-click the dodgy executable First and for most I am in no way a tech, but from my browsing for info on DEP, first led me to this site, and then to the windows site.
The windows site was a little more helpfull than this one, but only because I am cused with vista.
From the start menu, select "All Programs", then "Accessories" and right-click on the "Command Prompt" shortcut and choose "Run As Administrator".
From here you can use the following command to disable Data Execution Prevention (DEP) with the following command: /set nx Always Off Keeping your command prompt open, run your setup or other process being stopped by DEP.
• Configure Exceptions to DEP If you have a program you know is legitimate that happens to cause DEP errors, you can add it to the list of exceptions. I don't happen to have Irfan View, but I'll use Foxit Software's PDF reader as a random example: In this example the program was located in " C:\Program Files\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\Foxit Reader.exe".
As you can see in the image above, the default DEP setting is to "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select:". The program you're looking for will, of course, be elsewhere, but most likely somewhere within "C:\Program Files".
my Win XP give this error on explorer and generic host services, I dont know what else will cause an error, its like everyday there is a new program that causes the error, that also windows programs.
I am trying to run Warlords Battlecry 3 on Windows Vista.
But every time I run the executable file, the Data Execution Prevention message pops up and says that it cannot run.
