NiceLabel just does not start with no error message displayed

Problem

You have sucessfully installed NiceLabel software following the installation instructions. When you double click the NiceLabel icon, the application starts loading, you can see the hour glass icon, but then nothing happens.

The reason for the behaviour can be caused by Data Execution Prevention (DEP) functionality. Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is a set of hardware and software technologies that perform additional checks on memory to help prevent malicious code from running on a system. In Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Windows 2003 Server, DEP is enforced by hardware and by software.

NiceLabel software is detected as software with malicious code that could harm the Windows system and is prevented from being run without any error message displayed.

NiceLabel software does not contain any harmful contents and will not corrupt your Windows system.

A detailed description of the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature is available online in Microsoft Knowledge base in Article 875352.

Solution

Solution (recommended): Upgrade to the latest version of NiceLabel software. The problem was solved in version 4.0.3.

Also make sure no "Euro Plus" applications are listed in this registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers]

Delete all entries that list any file listed as "C:\Program Files\EuroPlus\...":

Alternatively, you can disable DEP feature on your computer. You have the following two possibilities available:

Workaround 1: Disable the DEP checking for NiceLabel software only. When you will start NiceLabel software, Windows will not check it for malicious code. Please follow these steps:

  1. Run System from Control Panel.
  2. Go to Advanced tab.
  3. Click on the Settings button in the Performance section.
    Performance Options dialog box will open.
  4. Go to the tab Data Execution Prevention.
  5. Enable the option Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select
  6. Click the Add button and add NiceLabel executable file to the list. If you use NiceWatch, put it in the list as well.
    c:\Program Files\EuroPlus\NiceLabel 5\bin\nlabel5.exe
    c:\Program Files\EuroPlus\NiceLabel 5\bin\nwatch5.exe
    c:\Program Files\EuroPlus\NiceLabel 5\bin\nwatchs5.exe

Workaround 2: Disable the DEP checking globally for your computer. When you run any application on your computer, Windows will not check it for malicious code. Please follow these steps:

  1. Run System from Control Panel.
  2. Go to Advanced tab.
  3. Click on the Settings button in the Startup and Recovery section.
    Startup and Recovery dialog box will open.
  4. Click on the Edit button.
  5. BOOT.INI file will be opened in the Notepad editor.
  6. Change the parameter
    /NoExecute=OptOut
    into
    /Execute
  7. Reboot the computer.
