PUB2: GP Fault When Opening a Non-Publisher File

PUB2: GP Fault When Opening a Non-Publisher File


The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a


If you create a new publication by importing a non-Publisher file
while a publication is already open, a general protection (GP) fault
may occur. This problem occurs when the first publication is set up
for special paper.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Publisher versions 2.0 and
2.0a. This problem was corrected in Publisher version 3.0 for Windows 95.


To avoid this problem, close the publication that is set up for
special paper before you create a new publication by importing a
non-Publisher file.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

1. Open or switch to Microsoft Publisher and start with a blank page.

2. From the Page menu, choose Special Paper. Select any special paper
   style and choose OK.

3. From the File menu, choose Open Existing Publication. In the List
   Files Of Type list box, select a non-Publisher format. Select a file
   or document and choose OK.

4. A message appears asking you whether or not you want to save the
   open publication.

The following error messages appear whether you choose to save or not.
If you choose to save, they appear after the Save dialog box closes.
If you choose not to save, they appear immediately.

   An error has occurred in your application. If you choose to
   Ignore, you should save your work in a new file. If you choose
   to Close, your application will terminate.

If you choose Ignore, the message just reappears. If you choose Close,
the following message appears:
