Issue with font files on japanese Windows 8 OS RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are currently facing an issue with the fonts on japanese Windows 8. While doing a normal compilation of a painter screen that is part of our application we are facing compilation issues on japanese version of Windows 8. The same operation goes perfectly fine on english version of winodws 8. While investigating the compilation issue, we could figure out that manually reinstalling msgothic.gcc files  at times helped in successful compilation of painter screen file. Could you please help us understand the exact impact of manual reinstallation. Also please advise on how to address this issue.

     Please keep us posted about why there is difference in between windows 8 japanese and english versions from the gothic files perspective.

    Thank you,
