Maybe this will help.

do either of the following four options:

1. Exclude the application that has the error occurring from Data Execution Prevention (DEP).

2. Add the /TSAWARE linker option to build your application.

3. Add the /TSAWARE option with editbin.exe tool.

- Run Command prompt of Vistual Studio.
- Type following command.

editbin.exe /TSAWARE <Program file name>

- You can confirm that the program is aware of terminal service by following command.

editbin.exe /headers <Program file name>
  8540 DLL characteristics
      Dynamic base
      NX compatible
      No structured exception handler
      Terminal Server Aware
