my system:
GeForce 6200 TC 64MB PCI Express
Dfi 925x-t2
Pentium 4 630 3.0GHz 2MB LGA775
(PC2-4200 DDR2-533 512MB)*2
Serial ATA 120GB
Win XP PRO SP2 (DEP set to Opt-OUT)

the issue:
i have windows running with DEP set to opt out mode. i downloaded the Windwos
Binary Stable release 7.7.1, and installed fine, but the scheme.exe always
threw an exception whenever i tried to run it, and it kept giving me "MIT
Scheme Exception: There is no trap handeler for recovery! >> the trap is an
ACCESS_VIOLATION trap." after reading through all the documentation i could
find on how to install and bugs and what not i still came up short. but then
i rememberd that i set up to opt-out on dep. so i went to (right click on "my
computer")>properties>advanced tab>settings button>"Data Execute Prevention"
tab>"add button" and added scheme.exe to the list. after that MIT Scheme
hasn't given me any troubles.

you should add a note into the instalation instructions stateing that MIT
Scheme needs to be added onto the DEP exception list so that it doesn't cause
anyone else head aches.

ps. this may also apply to other OS's implementing this feature.
