Hello Dekaronians!

In case you are experiencing the 'minilauncher.exe has stopped working' or similar error, follow the guide below to disable Data Execution Prevention for launcher.exe, minilauncher.exe and dekaron.exe in 'bin' folder. DEP won't necessarily shut down the game completely and give you an error, it can cause poor in-game performance as well.

Disabling DEP for Dekaron

Step 1: Navigate to Control Panel -> System & Security -> System


Step 2: Click Advanced System Settings and then click Settings under Performance tab.


Step 3: Once you are in Settings you will see Data Execution Prevention tab, click on it.


Step 4: Click on "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select"
Step 5: Locate 'minilauncher.exe', 'launcher.exe' and 'dekaron.exe' in 'bin' folder.

How it should look?


This tutorial explains how to disable DEP for Dekaron only, not entirely.
