Sequenced Application Triggers Data Execution Prevention RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are trying to sequence Sibelius 5.2.5. Installing the application on Vista 32bit Enterprise does not appear to cause any problems. We are using a licence server to restrict the instances of Sibelius running on the network.

    Once we try to sequence the applications, the installation appears to go well. When it comes to launching the application during the sequence, it crashes with an error. The DEP notice then pops up to say it has stopped Sibelius.

    The error details are below:

    Problem signature:
      Problem Event Name: BEX
      Application Name: Sibelius.exe
      Application Version:
      Application Timestamp: 48c8046b
      Fault Module Name: sftldr.dll_unloaded
      Fault Module Version:
      Fault Module Timestamp: 48a8a7cb
      Exception Offset: 6fb08601
      Exception Code: c0000005
      Exception Data: 00000008
      OS Version: 6.0.6001.
      Locale ID: 2057
      Additional Information 1: bfef
      Additional Information 2: e8adce1c2b9e7be834b4063ac3c53863
      Additional Information 3: bfef
      Additional Information 4: e8adce1c2b9e7be834b4063ac3c53863

    If we ignore this and complete the sequencing process, the virtualised application crashes with the same error on launching.

    We have tried disabling Data Execution Prevention, but when sequencing, it appears that the sequencing application re-enables DEP.

    Since the application installs correctly without App-v, is App-v doing something wrong here?
