Default 2008 Server Fonts

There are some special settings to turn on in 2008 EE to get the fonts to load properly. Apparently it is the same issue as under Vista. Can someone tell me the steps to load fonts properly? We are having rendering issues and think that this may be the problem...our 2008 servers are working just fine.

Thank you for your help!

when you get to the fonts folder on the c:drive.
File/Install New Font/search for font/select/OK.

are you on a mac or pc desktop workstation? how is your work-flow setup?

THis is a Windows 2008 server installation. What you are describing sounds like a regular font installation. Apparently that is not enough for setting up FusionPro Server on Windows 2008. We were told that it required some special steps just like an installation on Vista.

Hello,

Windows Server 2008 isn't officially supported for FusionPro Server at this time but the team is actively working on it. While some customers have been using 2008 with some degree of success, there are some known issues that our development team is aware of and looking to address in the FusionPro product.

Regarding your font loading issue, one way around this might be to look at your workflow itself. I assume you are using FusionPro Desktop on Mac or Windows machines and those users perform a "Collect" on their template which is then sent over to the FusionPro Server machine. In the collect process, the Desktop user has the option to collect fonts from their Desktop machine along with the job. This makes the Assets.data file in the collect process.

Just make sure that the Assets.dat file collected for a job resides in the same location as your .dif template file for the FP Server composition. FusionPro will detect the Assets.dat for that job, decrypt/uncompress the font data inside of that file, and use that exact font data for the composition.

So, using Assets.data will negate the need for FusionPro Server to use any locally installed system fonts on that machine.

hth.

Opening back up an old issue, Windows Server 2008 has been supported for a while now. We just ran into a problem installing FusionPro Server version 7.2 on a Windows 2008 R2 server (note 32 bit because some other software needed on the server won't run on 64 bit). Some, but not all of the fonts that come with FusionPro were installed. It looks like all of the bar code / postal bar code fonts installed okay, but the font needed for creating QR Codes, IDAutomation2D Regular, wasn't installed. It's not is the Windows fonts, and it's not in C:\Program Files\Printable\FusionPro\Fonts\.

Any suggestions show to get all the fonts to install?

Thanks

There are enhancements for better font installation and loading under Vista/Windows 7/Server 2008 in FusionPro 8.0.

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels. Please direct any sales or pricing questions to your salesperson or inquiries@marcom.com.

Complex template-building questions, as well as all installation and font questions or problems, should be directed to FusionProSupport@marcom.com. Paid consulting work may be required to fulfill your template-building needs.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
