Windows 7: unable to use DEP to accept games (cant add games in the aproved list)

i copy'd it opend the cmd.exe pasted it, and restarted my lap, but sadly it did not help

i do need to use the dep, i have a few games (such as sims midieval) that keeps getting block'd, shut down and so on because of the dep, even one that will not even start to begin with.

my girlfriend had the same problems and by adding them to the Dep list they started working without problems, so here is my dilema...

any idea what i did wrong?/ why it did not work?

Did you make sure to open the command prompt with admin privileges? You should have a shortcut to it in your Start menu; rightclick it and select Run as administrator.

The bcdedit command should also return with a message saying it was successful. Try again - does it?

I'm sorry it didn't work. Frankly I'm at a loss now - hopefully someone else has a better idea.

hope so to, ones i found the number i think i am going to call the person that reinstaled my lap, he had problems with reinstalling to start with (vista try'd to block 7 by cd, so he had to do it trough a external hard drive)
meby he knows something, but i am afraid he might say i need to reinstal it again, so i really hope someone can come up with something here

thanks for your time anyway

Had same problem as OP with DEP buttons shaded out and same error messages (admin privileges required and to use bcedit.exe). Fixed it with EasyBCD. On advanced settings tab, I set PAE to default and NoExecute set to OptIn. What this does is apply DEP to windows core (not applications) but also brings back the DEP buttons options for applications protection too. The problematic program that wouldnt run now works.
