Data Execution Prevention on FM Servers

Windows experts:


Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, running FMS 12v2.


I was looking at the machine with an IT liason , and we noticed something called "Data Execution Prevention" running, which looked like an anti-virus type of thing, possibly doing something like "active scanning" . . . we figured that's no good on FMS, so we tried to create an exception for Filemaker, but it came back with a message "This program must run with data execution prevention (DEP) enabled. You cannot turn off DEP for this program."


Not sure off hand if that's just because we need to stop the server service for a moment, or something else.


In any case, does anyone know if DEP is something we should be worrying about, or have any other useful thoughts?


Thanks in advance.
