I've been trying to get fxComposer to run but at startup I get a message box that says "Pointer create failed: IID_INVPlugin." Following that, another message box that says

"The Exception Breakpoint
A breakpoint has been reached.
(0x80000003) occurred in the application at location 0x7c901230."

I have an ATI Radeon 9800XTPro card, but their FAQ says it will work with any gpu. I've emailed them more than once but haven't gotten a response.

Thanks in advance.

Make sure you are using the latest version of fxComposer and ati drivers. Also you may want to look at other programs that were active at the time of the error. I have seen workarounds that you have to make sure that other programs are closed. I am currently having this problem myself on oracle, and it looks like it is the result of bad programming. Looks like in my case it was just a random glitch though. Hope this helps.

You will get same error message even with current (1.8) version of FX Composer and NVIDIA graphics board. Problem will be gone when you will turn off Data Execution Prevention (you can change that in System Properties -> Advanced -> Performance Settings).

Thanks for posting the solution - works like a charm.

I bet this effects a lot of programs with plugins (as the NoEXECUTE is doing what it's supposed to - prevent data from being executable code).
