    Data Execution Prevention

    I need to install a FM Patcher program so some of my older plug-in will work
    in Photo Shop and PSP.
    When I installed the patcher I get this error message that I have attached.
    FM Patcher is a small application that lets you change Photoshop .8bf
    plugins that were created with older versions of FilterMeister in order to
    make them work under Windows Vista. Normally developers just need to
    recompile their plugins with the latest FilterMeister release to make them
    Vista-compatible, but unfortunately some developers abandoned their plugins.
    So we decided to create FM Patcher to enable users of these old plugins to
    make them work under Vista.

    At the moment Fm Patcher does not fix the problem that old FilterMeister
    plugins have with activated Data Execution Prevention (DEP). You still need
    to deactivate DEP in your control panel or place your graphics application
    on the DEP exclusion list.
    Where is the DEP and how do I turn it off?
    Thank you for any help you can give me.

    Click Start/Right Click Computer/Properties/Advanced System
    Settings/Performance/Settings: then select your choice of action.

    Please let me know if that worked for you.

    Notable Changes in Windows Vista Service Pack 1:
    http://technet2.microsoft.com/Window...0a03e1033.mspx
    Data Execution Protection (DEP) is a memory-protection feature available
    beginning with Windows XP and Server 2003. SP1 improves security with a new
    set of Win32 APIs to allow programmatic control over a process's DEP policy.
    This will provide application developers with finer control on a process's
    DEP settings for security, testability, compatibility, and reliability.
