Consider the following scenario:
- You use Showplan XML for a forcing plan operation in SQL Server 2016 and 2017.
- The remote query tag in the Showplan XML is larger than 8 kilobytes (KB) characters.
- You try to parse the forced plan.
In this scenario, access violation may occur in compile code.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
