 VFP and Fatal Error 6


Can anyone tell why we would be getting a 'Fatal Error 6 ...' message when
attempting to select the FontName property for a label control in the
Properties dialog (VFP3.0)?  We have over 300 fonts available - could this
be the problem?  We've looked in manuals, DejaNews, and KB articles and
haven't been able to find out what's happening!!!  Funny thing is that the
error doesn't occur when selecting the FontName property for the form in
which the label is placed.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Thanks for the reply!

I ended up deleting 200 or so fonts and behold no more error! So now I have
about 230 fonts available.  :(
I just don't understand why the problem was only occurring with a label
control and not the form itself!!
