Script recording is slow and the recording platform occasionally becomes cpu bound

Problem

When recording a Citrix script, the recording activity is very slow and the recording platform sometimes becomes cpu bound (that is, peaks of 100% of cpu being used is observed).

However if VuGen is restarted or the recording platform is rebooted, recording performance is initially normal.

Cause

The Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature is enabled on the recording platform.

Fix

Disable the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature using the procedure described in How to configure the Windows Data Execution Prevention (DEP) feature.
