    Why? Whatever way you find to disable DEP, you will be modifying this file – this is where the setting is defined.

    Disabing DEP on a wide scale isn’t recommended. I would strongly advise that your long term strategy is to contact the vendor of the software causing you problems and reenable DEP asap.

    Are you sure that DEP (Data Execution Prevention) is the problem?

    The role of DEP is to make sure that programs are running safely. If they using
    By default it is turned on only for essential Windows programs and services.


    You have the option to define exceptions for different programs. This is what I suggest you to do before disable DEP.
