Using MapInfo v11 and v12 with ARCS for GIS and Windows 7

Workaround for ARCS for GIS with MapInfo v11 on Windows 7
The new version of ARCS for GIS for MapInfo which is currently in development, will resolve a current issue with MapInfo v11 and v12 and ARCS for GIS on Windows 7.

In the mean time and until the new version is available, the following workaround resolves the problem which is related to Microsoft’s ‘DEP’ or ‘no execute protection’. The workaround is to turn off Microsoft’s DEP and this can be done as follows:

(1) Start a command prompt as Administrator by clicking on start->all programs->accessories and then right click on 'command prompt' and choose "Run as administrator".

(2) In the command prompt window, type in the following command and hit the ‘enter’ key:

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

(3) Reboot the machine

ARCS for GIS will then work as normal with MapInfo v11 and v12.
