The GetGlyphOutline() function incorrectly returns glyphs from the GulimChe font in Windows 7

Symptoms

Assume that an application on a computer that is running Windows 7 uses the GetGlyphOutline() function to retrieve the outlines or bitmaps for Japanese characters. In this situation, the function incorrectly returns glyphs from the GulimChe font.

Note The expected behavior is that the function returns glyphs from the MS Gothic font.

Cause

This issue occurs because the font linking for the function is incorrect for Japanese characters.
