You receive an access violation in Msaccess.exe. This problem can be reproduced with an .mdb file using Access forms with many bitmaps.
Access 97 displays various resources, such as button, static text, an so on, with the forms as meta file and then it uses PlayMetaFileRecord() of Gdi32.dll. The application error always occurs at the LOGFONT32FROMLOGFONT16 macro in PlayMetaFileRecord(). This problem is not reproducible in Windows 95 because Windows 95 only copies the length of a font face name into lfFaceName of LOGFONT struc from LOGFONT16 struc; it never copies 32 bytes(LF_FACESIZE).
