CA PLEX 721 - Activex ImageMan crashes


Article ID: 237533


Updated On:


CA Plex


Plex is crashing while trying to create ImageMan ActiveX control on panel. As the ImageMan ActiveX vendor is not around anymore what we can do to get around this?




Release : 7.21

Component : Plex


The problem is due to DEP (Data Execution Prevention) enabled binaries not being able to load the ImageMax ActiveX ​control in use.

As a work around, you can disable DEP (Data Execution Prevention) for Plex.exe

--- "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\bin\editbin.exe" /NXCOMPAT:NO C:\temp\Plex.exe

Note: This may fail to update the EXE in the installation folder, better move to some temporary folder to make changes and later move to the installation folder
