I am using the ReportViewer over asp.net pages on a web hosting service. I am generating the reports independently of the 'Sql Reporting Services' windows service. In fact I have 'Sql Report Services' service turned off.
All export works okay when I test the report in IIS7 on my local machine and in Visual Studio. After I FTP the web application to the remote web host the report still works but only the Excel exports properly. The export to PDF or Word generates
System.DllNotFoundException: Unable to load DLL 'T2Embed': Access is denied
Other people have had this problem too but their remedy is to run cacls.exe and fidget around with t2embed.dll. Maybe that will work for a local client machine but that is not something I can do on a web hosts server. They seem to think the font
has security issues and a hotfix may be causing it. The next thing I will try will be to use a generic font in my report like Arial or Courier but I doubt that will fix it.
