First off, I have no idea why these programs trigger DEP to step in, maybe
someone else can explain that, but to offer some sort of "solution".....
.... start by looking how DEP is set on your machine. If it is already set to
"Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only", you can try
disabling DEP for those programs.
Since I do not have Vista here myself I will quote a little something from a
To explore your default system wide DEP policy for 32bit applications
(remember - the system wide DEP policy only applies to 32bit applications)
on Vista simply click start, then type 'system' and then scroll down and
click the search result entitled 'system'. On the new window that pops up
click 'Advanced System Settings', elevate it to admin when prompted and then
click the 'Settings' button under 'Performance'. Finally - click the 'Data
Execution Prevention' tab.

Good luck, let us know how you get on with this (would also be good to know
if you are running 32 or 64 bits Vista)
