GoldBox and DEP

15/02/2011 – in GoldBox, OS / Environment

GoldBox has been known to fall foul of Windows’ Data Execution Protection. This is a security feature of Server 2003, Server 2008, Vista and Windows 7.

The symptom is that GoldBox won’t run. There will be no error message nor any event logged in the system logs; it just won’t start.

The solution is to add all of the executables in the GoldBox folder to the DEP exeption list. Right-click on ‘My Computer’ or its equivalent, choose Properties > Advanced > Performance Settings > Data Execution Protection tab. Use the ‘add’ button to add the relevant .exe files.
