Cannot turn DEP off for this program

    I have an executable that links with Crystal Reports. On XP I can add this
    executable to the DEP exception list. However on VISTA, when I try to add
    this executable to the exception list, it won't allow it. I get this message
    "This program must run with data execution protection(DEP) enabled. You
    cannot turn off DEP for this program."

    Does anyone know what triggers this inability to add it to the exception list?

  2. Hello Bill,

    There are three possible causes for why you cannot add the app to the
    exceptions list:
    1.) This is a 64-bit application.
    2.) The application is in the Windows directory.
    3.) The application has been compiled for Vista and, therefore, DEP is
    enforced for it.

    I hope this information helps you.

    Thanks for the info Thomas. This app is not 64-bit, it is not in the windows
    directory but it is under the program files directory, and it has not been
    compiled for VISTA. I've been all over msdn, technet and other web sites and
    have found info on DEP, but not specific info on this issue.

    And your problem is?
    BTW: you should never, ever, not in your lifetime, turn DEP off.

    Add your program as an exception
