Q: Editor crashes with a DEP (Data Execution Prevention) error (Windows Vista). What should I do?
A: This happends because Vista is abit overzealous when it comes to protecting the computer from programs. You need to turn off DEP for the RME.exe file. Follow these steps:
  1. Open the Control Panel.
  2. Click on System.
  3. Click on Advanced system settings in the menu to the left.
  4. Click on the Settings button under the Performance box (description is "Visual effects, processor scheduling, memory usage and virtual memory") in the Advanced tab.
  5. Click on the Data Execution Prevention tab.
  6. Either only turn on DEP for esesntial programs, or add RME.exe to the list of exceptions.
  7. Click OK on every dialog and restart Windows if required.
