    • Name <"OCR A Extended"> "Arial"

 

Overview

  • Print a form containing some true type font through a Windows host spooler
  • The ttf font is not installed correctly on Windows OS level

 

Procedure

  • Sometimes the ttf font is not installed correctly on Windows OS level.  Try to install the font with two different approaches:
    1. From the command line:
      1. Delete the existing <font>.TTF from the Windows\Fonts directory of your print server
      2. Reboot the server
      3. After the restart copy a correct <font>.TTF to your print server and reboot one more time
      4. Test the print again
    2. From Windows Explorer:
      1. Use the same steps described above except use the 'Install' context menu entry in Windows Explorer to install the font.  Also ensure you reboot the server two times.
