    Hello everyone, anibody has experience on this??

    I have a web service that's used for export a rpt (Crystal Reports IX)
    to a PDF file. This report has a barcode made with interleaved20f5

    When I use it from my development enviroment its works fine, but when
    y use a test server in place of barcode font I see a replacement

    The interleaved 20f5 font it's installed on test server. Furthermore,
    if I run the report directly on test server, it's works. It's seems
    the trouble resides on the web service, or maybe over IIS, like if the
    font cannot be found. Anybody has any idea or can suggest me where can
    found information related on this??

    Thanks a lot, cheers from Argentina.

  2. Gazing into my crystal ball I observed msfs
    Is it an embedable font? If it's not you can have a real problem,
    because the PDF will lose the font once it gets to the client as well.

    Hi Adrienne! Thanks for the response.

    Yes, it's an embedable font, the only extrange thing we found at the
    moment resides on the font directory, we have 2 type of true type
    font. One of these have an double t icon (I.e. Interleaved2of5) and
    the another has an big o or something like this, the fonts with the
    big O are exported correctly and the font with double T icon dont in
    our test server, but yes in development enviroment.

    I'm not sure if can be a permission trouble with IIS 6.0 but continue

    It's strange, but installing Crystal Reports Net over test server
    solves the trouble. The only option selected from Visual Studio
    Installation Disc was Crystal Reports Net, the others not installed.
