Default Data Execution Prevention (DEP) error

Every now and then, KB will crash and I'll get a Data Execution Prevention (DEP) error. I'm running Vista Ultimate, SP1 on a Dell XPS Gen3, 3.4GHz P4 with 2Gb of memory and a NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT with the latest drivers. I've attempted to turn off DEP for KB, but my system won't allow that.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Try running KB using the compatibility tab in Vista.

Locate the KB game icon in your Start Menu -OR- find the executable file. Right click and select properties and then click on the Compatiblity tab. Within the compatablility section, select the checkbox to enable this program in compatibility mode and then select Windows XP SP2 as the OS for the game.

Thanks. I'll try that. Didn't think about doing that since there wasn't anything about OS requirements that I saw and figured that KB would be Vista compatible.

I would agree that is should work without forcing it into compatiblity mode but until it is fixed you should be able to use it to your advantage.

Default I get the Data Execution Prevention at these two points.

I can't to find a solution for this.
I'm also running Windows Vista Ultimate.
3ghz E8400
Geforce 8800GT.
2GB Kingston HyperX RAM


I tried the "compatibility mode for Windows XP SP2" and still have issue.
I also tried excluding King's Bounty executable in the DEP settings but it says that kb.exe needs to use it. Why???
I tried seeing if I could exclude my other games from DEP and the checkbox shows and works just fine.

Luckily I have saved just previous points before the same DEP incidents happen.

I got first error immediately after defeating "Lucky James" Castle on Islands (I already completed mission with "RedBeard" giving Black Seal to "Lucky James). It seemed to work again after reloading the same save point about 3 times.

Figuring I killed the Kraken already and now killed him, I decided to go back to his Beautiful fiance (I forgot her name) to see if she'll let me marry her cuz her fiance is dead. The time it crashes with DEP again, is just after when I ask her to marry me and I click on the response that "James and the Kraken are dead".

I'm going to try to kill James first then the Kraken. Then go to James fiance and see what happens.

That talking to Mirabella after killing the Kraken crashes the game is a known bug. There's a small mod around here somewhere that fixed this.
