We call it a Klassiker (Part III)

Hello guys,

take a short look at the following behaviour:
after the succesfull installation of Windows CE emulator, Microsoft eMbedded Visual C++, Microsoft Visual Studio 2003, or Windows CE Platform Builder on a Windows XP or Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) you will maybe see a following error message:
"'Virtual PC/Windows CE Emulator' will cause Windows to become unstable. Windows has prevented these drivers from loading."

But what's the cause for described behaviour? It sound very serious, but
don't be afraid, this is a known problem and can be solved.
To do this, just follow the following steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
  3. Under Start and Recovery, click Settings.
  4. In the Startup and Recovery dialog box, click Edit.
  5. Disable PAE mode by removing the /pae option if it exists.
  6. If you are using Windows XP SP2, remove the /noexecute option if it exists, and then add the /execute option.
  7. On the File menu, click Save.
  8. To exit Notepad, click Exit on the File menu.
  9. To close System Properties, click OK two times.
  10. Restart your computer.
If you need more detailed information about this problem/behaviour, just check the following Microsoft link.

Have fun!

I prefer disabling the according device in the Device Manager because I do not use the emulator and do not want to abandon the data execution protection.
