I believe I was talking about the actual message produced, not the meaning
of the error code.  The message *is* shown by the Microsoft default error
handler, and that's what the Adobe support link refers to (and I've seen
it on my machine as well, for apps unrelated to Adobe).  You're obviously
correct in that the code actually means "access violation".
