Cannot re-enable DEP

Posted: 02-09-2008, 11:17 AM
I have trouble playing all of my 3 AOEIII games as DEP is stopping it and/or
protection stub (it happens with both). I found the John Barrett page on
after doing a Google, and it explained how to disable the DEP for such
problems, which I did. It also gave the re-enable process as well. I have
tried to re-enable the DEP about 5 or 6 times now, following word for word
what John Barrett has suggested for re-enabling DEP but to no avail. It just
will not enable? It's all greyed out and nothing works. Before I had to
reformat last night, what I did was 'turn on DEP for all programs except
those I select' and this worked once I had pointed DEP in the direction of
the games and the other program that would not work. However, I cannot do
anythig at all with the DEP now and I just don't know what the hell to do?
Can anyone offer some kindly advice please, to a relative newb who knows
nothing about this type of thing? Thanks in advance if you can. Regards,
Mike. UK.

Hi Mike,

Try the enable method here for DEP to see if it will get it going again
for you.

Hi Brink
Thanks a lot. It worked perfectly! I was using the Barrett version where you
have to type in.......AlwaysOn and that did not work but your advice for
the.....OptIn verion sorted it! I have problems palying games as it keeps
saying that DEP hs stopped the game. I have just done a complete reinstall
and I am sure that last time, I just let DEP allow the game and it worked but
it doesn't seem to want to do it this time? There are a few programs that DEP
won't allow and it's hellishly annoying but that's Vista for you? Not
finished properly but looks good, so we will sell it! Typical MS! The
protection stub is also a problem and I also get errors when I try to
download .NET 1.1 Redist. It keeps saying that it has stopped working as
well! Does anything work correctly in Vista? As I said, looks good but
certainly don't work right yet and I think it needed a lot more beta testing
before it was released to the public? But thanks again for your advice. A bit
happier now. Cheers! Mike, Rochester, UK

Your welcome Mike.

To try and help with your other problems, double check that th
programs are compatible with Vista. Sometimes on some older program
made for previous versions of Windows they will work better i
Compatibility mode. It may be worth a try

Micky the 'OptIn' is simply another variation on the command. The 'AlwaysOn'
command you located on my website works perfectly well. I've just disabled
and re-enabled DEP on my own machine using the commands from my website and
everything has worked perfectly!

Hi John
I am terribly sorry but I certainly didn't mean to offend you at all? It's
just that I did, as I said, try your version quite a few times and it didn't
work on my PC (probably the fault of my PC I think) but the other one did.
Yes, I know they do exactly the same thing but on this PC of mine, one worked
and one didn't. It's not a problem John as DEP is enabled now. I was going to
do a restore as you suggested but I don't need to now as my PC is up and
running OK now as well. Sorry again if I offended. It was most certainly not
meant to sound like that? Regards, Mike.

Re: Cannot re-enable DEP

I wasn't offended. Yes, as you say, it could have been your PC. You maybe
also could have typed the command incorrectly which, of course, would result
in the command not working. I know when I first tried the enable command I
didn't work; however, on closer inspection I noticed that I had typed the
command incorrectly (by missing out a letter in bcdedit).

If any command on my website don't work then I am grateful to people who
take the time to contact me and tell me so, just as you originally did. As
this particular command information was uploaded to my website during the
early beta of Vista there was every possibility hat the command line could
have been changed without me knowing that is why when I saw Brink's solution
I immediately checked that the details on my site were correct and that they
worked. However, just in case anyone might have a similar problem I will add
the 'OptIn' command so that user's can use either command.

Hi John

They should both work just fine. The "OptIn" command is the defaul
setting in Vista for the "Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs an
services only." option in the DEP window, where as the "AlwaysOn
command is for the "Turn on DEP for all programs and services excep
those I select." option instead. I just found that most people ha
better success with the "OptIn", so I went with that one. Hope thi
helps

Have a great day
Shaw

Thanks Shawn. It will do no harm to include both commands on my web page.
Obviously I will stick with the AlwaysOn option but will incorporate the
OptIn as a bracketed option.

> They should both work just fine. The "OptIn" command is the default

> command is for the "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except
> those I select." option instead. I just found that most people had
> better success with the "OptIn", so I went with that one. Hope this
