In this scenario, the Microsoft GetAdaptersAddresses (IPHLPAPI) function is invoked by the GetAdapterInfo function. The Microsoft function checks DhcpIsEnabled (dhcpcsvc). In the process, a non-executable address is processed.

This is caused by Data Execution Protection (DEP).

  1. Open System.
  2. Select Advanced System Settings.
  3. Select the Advanced Tab.
  4. Select Performance -> Settings...
