Data Execution Prevention

No compiled opengl code will run on my system, the programs are the tutorials from this site and compile with no errors. Windows stops the program running saying it’s stopped the progam due to DEP protection. I have followed the help and tried to turn DEP off for the openGL compiled program but windows say it must be turned on for this program. To make the code the progams compliant with DEP seem well beyond my knowledge. No opengl code will run at all, i’ve tried many examples. I am using visual studio 2008 and vista business. Iv’e found no solution from www searches, can anyone help?

That sounds like a driver bug, either in DEP or (more likely) in your graphics driver. Make sure you have the most up-to-date driver for your graphics card from the manufacturer’s website (I’ve heard bad things about drivers from Windows Update).

Also, try running the program as administrator and see if that helps.
