DEP mitigation on DEP excluded item RRS feed

  • Question

  • Following an upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 8 Pro I found my EMET system settings had reverted to the defaults, so I changed it to Maximum Security and rebooted. That's when I found Unreal Tournament 2004 doesn't play nice with DEP so I changed my EMET DEP setting from Always On to Opt-Out, rebooted and added UT2004.exe to the DEP exclusion list in System Protection.

    Still crashes.

    So I added UT2004.exe to EMET and checked none of the protection boxes. Now when I launch EMET produces a pop-up saying UT2004.exe triggered its DEP protection and will be terminated. But DEP isn't enabled for this application.

    Why is this occurring?
