Application crashes if it contains VBA macros in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2
Consider the following scenario:
You run an application or an add-in on a Windows RT 8.1, a Windows 8.1 or a Windows Server 2012 R2-based device. The application or the add-in contains Visual Basic for Application (VBA) macros.
In this scenario, the application or the add-in crashes.
This issue occurs because a stack overflow exception generates when the
Format function calls the VarFormat function.
To resolve this issue, install update 2919355.
