Why can't I start the software "CXControl"?

FAQ #101150

If the software CXControl (used for configuring the multifunctional preset counter type CXF) is installed on a PC which is equipped with a INTEL or AMD CPU supporting the "NX-Feature", the launch of CXControl can lead to a blue screen.

 

Symptom 
After installing the software CXControl on a PC with actual INTEL oder AMD-CPU, which support the NX-Feature, it can happen that after starting the CXControl a blue screen with code 0x0000000FC(0xA91D69E8, 0x284AD163, 0xA1D6970, 0x00000001) appears.
This happens with CXControl version V 1.0.1.1 or higher

Reason
That fault occurs only with Windows XP SP2 and in association with CPU's which support the NX-feature. The NX feature (NX bit), which stands for No eXecute, is a technology used in CPUs to segregate areas of memory for use by either storage of processor instructions (or code) or for storage of data for security reasons.

Solution
In order to avoid this problem the NX feature can be disabled on the PC.

  • Change to the root where windows is installed (usually C:\) and click with the right mouse-button on the file "boot.ini" and choose "open".
  • Follow the content of the file boot.ini:
    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional"
    /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
  • Change expression /NoExecute=OptIn to /NoExecute=AlwaysOff
  • Save the file boot.ini
  • Reboot your PC
  • Start CXControl - now the tool should be launched without problems.
