okay appears I have fixed it with a system restore. Was having big problems with fsx slowing to a crawl and really buggy.

For stable fsx, try to apply all settings i recommended in this thread: http://forum.avsim.net/topic/407468-ctds-with-ezdok/

 

You will find there some important settings in my first and second post. If you set fsx like that, it's very unlikely that that you can get CTD or OOM error....

Thanks for this!

Yup same here, I cannot set the data execution either. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I am getting BEX errors randomly when flying. Would like to fix this annoying problem.

@, @@captain420, you must turn off UAC first: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/disable-user-account-control-uac-the-easy-way-on-windows-vista/  Set it to "never notify".

 

UAC should stay disabled anyway. After that you should be alowed to acces and dissable DEP: http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/what-is-data-execution-prevention-dep-and-how-to-disable-it-in-windows-vista/

You have there two metods described.

 

Verify that you have administrator rights also

According to Microsoft, FSX requires DEP and it cannot be disabled.  I do not understand this concept of disabling DEP.  I know it is possible through other methods but I'm worried this could create even more problems for those having issues with FSX running properly.

 

Best regards,

Jim

Sorry, i can't agree with you on this. FSX do not requires DEP, and DEP can be and should be disabled for FSX to run better and to avoid some errors and CTD's.

 

I have double - checked this, here is one source we can trust(FS Labs): http://www.flightsimlabs.com/support/knowledge-base/

 

And Mr. Lefteris blog too: http://lkalamaras.blogspot.de/2008/08/was-this-for-our-own-good-part-deux.html

 

Actually, i must correct myself for previous post - i gived two options there and in fact is only one.

Don't use that metod which adds fsx to DEP exceptions.

We must disable DEP completely using command promp and command - bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

 

p.s. you must restart PC after that for changes to take effect

I have had DEP disabled for the last 6 months and my number of StackHas/BEX related crashes is down to nearly 0 (if not exactly 0). I was getting them pretty often with the PMDG 737/MD11 at high detail airports but since I made the change I have no problems at all (used the Alternative Method from the above link).

B247NG okay I'm confused a little. I am trying to disable DEP through the 2nd method which is using the command line. I'm looking for a permanent solution so should i type:

 

bcdedit.exe /set nx AlwaysOff

 

or

 

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

 

The first method is confusing since it says "Turn on DEP...", I thought that we are trying to turn this off?

Sorry.  I still stand by my comments.  It is dangerous to disable DEP and, like one of your links, it shouldn't be done automatically.  DEP stopped the program from functioning for a reason - maybe a virus or malware was attempting to circumvent the programs security.  So it is dangerous for simply everyone disabling DEP unless they want to disable it temporarily to run a program to purchase a product or run a program that might use e-sellerate to verify whether your product is legal or not.  BTW, all FSDT products use E-Sellerate and I have most of them installed.  I have DEP enabled and have never had a problem with it or any other security program.  I just want to make sure that members here at AVSIM are aware of what they are doing if and when they disable DEP in FSX or any other product.

 

Best regards,

Jim

Jim, 

 

I do agree with you that there is a risk involved with disabling DEP, however, with common security practices (virus protection, regular virus/malware scans, not opening attachments or links from unknown or suspect looking emails/address, etc.) you can mitigate these risks substantially. For me, the rewards (no more StackHas/BEX errors and CTDs) have far out-weighted the risks associated with disabling DEP. But as with any tweak, change, or system modification, it is at the risk and discretion of the end user.

@McLaren  I totally agree with you there Jordan.  Just want to make sure non-computer experts are aware of the risks.

 

Best regards,

Jim
