Notepad++ and EMET incompatibility
Has any run into problems running recent versions of Notepad++ on systems with EMET 5.2 (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Tookit - http://www.microsoft.com/emet)?
Recent versions of Notepad++ (6.8.6 and up I believe) crash on startup now which has not been a problem with any previous versions for the past year. Ultimately I needed to disable the ROP Caller Check within EMET which allowed Notepad++ to function correctly again. This mitigation check makes sure that when an application reaches a critical function it is reached via a CALL function rather than on a RET instruction.
I just thought I would point this out in case it hasn’t been reported yet, and to help others running into crash scenarios with EMET installed.
thanx for letting us know. Just one question of an uninformed one, why would I use EMET?
