    @me — one of the prerequisites for the GAMME tool is the presence of Microsoft Outlook 2003 or 2007 which may be why not having MS Office installed may be causing the DEP issue.

      Yea, the GAMME client is kinda trippy. It’s like they hacked the app together in a weekend and are barely keeping it together with duct tape and bailing wire. I’m sure it’s MUCH more complicated and quite the engineering feat… but it feels like that.

        I use GAMME on an almost weekly basis. With the frequent updates and improvements/enhancements it runs like a champ if you read the admin guide. Yes, sometime’s the Exchange Server itself can cause bottlenecks/decreases in performance and will result in you having to lower the default simultaneous threads down from 25 to ~10. It’s a solid tool and has helped me through many Exchange to Google migrations. Yes, the 64bit version of Outlook has bitten me before (but only once). I now make it clear that it must be the 32Bit installed on the GAMME server. With GAMME 3.0 there were some much needed updated like the ability to migrate public folders to Google Groups and the ability to migrate Calendar Resources.

        I truly think it is a great tool that is provided at no cost. We see the Google team continuing to improve it with every release.

        I haven’t been on this board much, but will continue to check in. If anyone has any issues with any of the GAMME functionalist please let me know.

        Thank you

    I’m facing the same issue as Robert in his January 27th comment. My client is also running Server 2008 with no office installed. GAMME is tripping DEP for me as well.

    Thanks for posting up your findings.

    I’m on an enterprise trial, so I *could* have called their support, but I just can’t do that without at least trying to find a solution.

    My situation was slightly different.

    No Office installed on the machine at all.

    In server 2008, it kept tripping DEP.

    Tried it on my laptop which I just switched from 64 bit office to 32 bit office, and it ran fine.
