Zune Device - Microsoft

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Smoothyounglady, Feb 2, 2007.

  1. Someone please help me I have been trying for 3 days to install this program
    (Zune) on to my new PC - Windows Vista Home Premium - I've called tech
    support for the device and they are just as lost as I am.....I guess due to
    the fact that they are both new programs.....There is something called the
    DEP that is blocking me from adding the Zune software to my PC - PLEASE

    Well, first, Microsoft needs to design their own damn software
    to work on their own damn OS. Idiots.

    That's not your fault.

    Type "System" in Start Menu's Search. Click the one that only says
    Then, click "Advanced system settings"
    "Data Execution Prevention" Tab

    No, try to add the Zune software from there. Your best
    bet will probably be to just check the first option,
    "Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only"

    Okay, if that doesn't work, just turn DEP off completely.

    To stop the DEP protection, launch an elevated command prompt with administrative privileges.
    Type "CMD" in the search box, right click it and select
    "Run as administrator"

    Enter the line below exactly, press enter.

    bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

    Maybe the software will install now.

    After it is installed, enter the line below into the elevated CMD prompt
    to turn DEP back on.

    bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn


    Take care,

    Zune and Vista do NOT work together. You will have to wait for an
    update. Seems the two divisions were not talking before the player was

    If you use the software that you download from the Zune site (rather
    than what comes with the Zune), it should work.
