When using Bitstream Fontware for Microsoft Word version 5.00 in OS/2 version 1.10, a protection violation will occur while Fontware is copying over new typeface outlines from the floppy disk. To reproduce the problem, follow the steps shown below:

  1. From the main menu, choose Add/Delete Fontware Typefaces.
  2. Press F3 to add a typeface.
  3. Insert the Typeface Outline Disk in Drive A and press ENTER.
  4. Select the typefaces to copy to the hard disk.
  5. Press F10 to copy the files.

The following OS/2 error message will appear:

SYS1943: A program caused a protection violation.

The following are two workarounds:

  1. Add the new typefaces from the DOS compatibility box, where this protection violation does not occur.
  2. Use the DOS DISKCOPY command and make copies of the typeface disk. Use these copied disks when adding typefaces.
