    WLPG stops working - DEP

    Hi,

    apologies if this has been aired before. Whenever I open WPG or WLPG it
    works for about 5 seconds then shuts down. After shut down i am informed
    that 'To help protect my computer Data Execution Protection has closed down
    the program'

    Can anyone help please?

    Thank you

    Hi Cass,

    On which Operating system is this? Also, have you got the latest version of
    Windows Live Photo Gallery from http://photogallery.live.com/ ?

    Sunshine,

    sorry about the delay in response , I have Vista Home Premium which came
    with Windows Photo Gallery. Additionally I have already downloaded the WLPG
    from the link you have detailed. Both operate in the same manner and close
    down shortly after being opened.

    Thank you for the suggestions but i am absolutely stumped by this one - have
    spent hours on the internet looking for a solution....

    Thanks again

    Cass

    Re: WLPG stops working - DEP

    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
    blog article:
    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.

    Source: DEP on Vista exposed! -
    http://blogs.technet.com/robert_hens...explained.aspx

    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)

    described) for WPG and i get the message that i cannot disable WEP for this
    programme

    Thanks again for the suggestions

    Re: WLPG stops working - DEP

    Cass,

    Sorry for late reply but I've been thinking about this one for a while.

    So you can't for Windows Photo Gallery, does it allow you to do so for
    Windows Live Photo Gallery? You did elevate to admin yea? I fear just doing
    so from a regular admin account without elevating to full admin won't do (if
    possible at all).

    If that doesn't work than I'm stumped, can't try for myself as I'm still on
    Windows XP (only has software DEP, which never gave me problems), I really
    would have otherwise.

    Re: WLPG stops working - DEP

    What type of antivirus software you have running on your system?
    It might be shutting down application for some reason.

    Also, are you able to successfully run any other Windows Live application?
    Such as Messenger or Writer?

    Were you able to run Photo Gallery successfully ever?

    What software you usually use to edit your photos?
    What is the main location of your photos? Are they all under My Pictures or
    somewhere else?

    Thanks,
    Galina
