  • Question

  • hi i'm running vs on a dev machine i rdp into after establishing vpn.

    we are going to install barcode fonts but one of us thinks they need to be installed at the directory you see below on my local and the other one thinks on the machine i rdp into.

    what is the real story?

    C:\Windows\Fonts directory

  • need to be installed at the directory you see below

    That folder exists on every machine and contains the font files.

    You have to install the font on all machines where it's used; so (also) on the machine where you create report with VS.

  • thx Olaf, in my case i think that means the machine i rdp into cuz i cant imagine vs running there is lookig at my machine's font folder.  Do you agree?  after all its throwing stuff into a repo folder there, not on my local so i think it works in the context of that machine's drive mappings.
