Creative Writer: GP Fault After Choosing Jokes with Dell 32K PSS ID Number: Q108339 Article last modified on 10-24-1994 PSS database name: HOMEKIDS

1.00 WINDOWS

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Creative Writer for Windows, version 1.0

SYMPTOMS

If you save your document after you have selected jokes multiple times (clicked the Jester in the Carpet Bag), you may receive a general protection fault (GP fault). This may occur if you are using version 1.3 of the Dell 640 x 480 32,000-color video driver. Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

RESOLUTION

To avoid this problem, do one of the following: - Use the Dell 640 x 480 16-color driver. - Use the Dell 640 x 480 256-color driver. - Use the Microsoft S3 driver, version 1.4. - Use a standard VGA video driver. NOTE: Version 1.4 of this video driver does not include a 32,000-color mode. The Microsoft S3 v. 1.4 video driver is included in the Windows Driver Library (WDL).
