Default Re: HELP! Pro Tools crashes at \"Creating DAE Objec

Windows XP SP2 (Service Pack 2) introduced some new “Data Execution Prevention” features that are designed to prevent certain types of malicious code attacks. There are two components to these new features: software protections and hardware protections. When SP2 was released, very few pieces of hardware supported the hardware protections and we didn’t see any problems with Pro Tools.

The end user experience is that you install Pro Tools on a new machine, you launch it, and the machine reboots. The solution is to disable the “Data Execution Protection” features.

DEP (Data Execution Prevention)

Right-click "My Computer".
Select "Properties".
Select the "Advanced" tab.
Click the "Settings" button in the "Startup and Recovery" category.
Under the "System startup" category, click on the "Edit" button, which will open the system startup parameters in Notepad. Change NoExecute=Optin or Optout to NoExecute=AlwaysOff.
Close window.
Click OK and say Yes to saving the settings and restart your computer.

If this does not resolve your issue, please let us know the processor and chipset type installed in your computer. You should also make sure that any RAID or SCSI controllers built onto the motherboard have been disabled from the BIOS.
