Consider the following scenario:

  • You create a custom application that uses a bitmap data structure.
  • You specify a very small buffer for the bitmap.
  • The buffer does not align the bitmap.
  • You run this application on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.

In this scenario, the application may crash.

If this application runs in kernel mode, you may receive a Stop error on a blue screen. For example, assume the application is a driver that runs in kernel mode. In this scenario, you may receive a Stop error on a blue screen.
