Error description

  • Corrupt OLE objects which were turned into icons to prevent
    DOORS from crashing can still be activated to cause a crash.
    
    APAR PM57507 fixed a Microsoft issue where corrupt OLE objects
    were causing DOORS to crash. The fix was to simply turn these
    OLE objects into icons. However, any user can still go into the
    OLE properties and change it to display as editable information,
    causing DOORS to crash again.
    
    DOORS shall keep these corrupt OLE objects in icon form. Because
    any casual user who knows nothing about the original problem can
    still try to display the OLE and cause DOORS to crash.
