View Full Version : Vista DEP error fix here.

Yes, for those of you who keep running into a DEP (Data Execution Prevention) error when trying to run Thief: DS, this should solve your problem.

Open commandoprompt (either through start>run or through the exe itself)

Once commandoprompt is up, type:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

And reboot.


[Edit] It should be noted that this turns off the protection for windows processes, so I would advice you to have a realtime scanning antivirus program.

I've tried the dos command, but it won't accept the command.

If it makes a difference I am running Home Premium....

Anyone know where to find a legit copy of XP?

Fry's Electronics and many other outlets sell full editions of Home, Pro, and the Upgrades.

In our area Pro is selling for about $150.00 and the upgrade for about $50.00.

Google is your friend.

Many online sites are also offering it.
