Postby Jac » Sun Mar 24, 2013 1:05 am

Sometimes Morrowind will crash with a BEX error when running under Windows 7 64-bit. To fix this, follow these steps:

  1. Click on start, then control panel.
  2. Click on System and Security.
  3. Click on System.
  4. Click on Advanced System settings.
  5. Click on the Settings button underneath Performance.
  6. Click on the data execution protection tab.
  7. Select the bottom radial button that says "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select:"
  8. Click on the add button and navigate to morrowind.exe.
  9. Select it and click Ok twice. Close all of the windows.

What's a BEX when it's at home?

It's an error that sometimes shows up when Morrowind crashes, TS. You'll need to click on the additional information tab in the error window. I don't know if Windows 7 32-bit has data execution protection though.

What is DEP?
I am but a fragment cast apart from the whole.
A bit of flotsam to cling to in the storm.

I am a fly in the ointment, I am a whisper in the shadows.
I am also an old old woman. More than that you need not know.

Step carefully. No path is darker than when your eyes are shut.
