Barcode Generated bigger in size after upgrade to windows server 2008

I have upgraded from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008. My Vb application uses IDAutomation's sofware to generate the barcode type barcode 128.

After the upgrade to windows server 2008, some how the barcode are generated bigger than what they use to? No code change is done, is it some resolution issue? or some setting after moving to new server?

I tried to look at Image Generator it is set to auto size and says code 128.

Please help.

Thanks

Thanks for your help. I could resolve it. The path that application used to generate the wmf files was missing in the actual machine.

Thanks,

Yes that could be the problem,

The latest version of the active X control has a 64 bit version.
Can you email your order ID to support@idautomation.com?

Thanks ,no code has changed at all.Windows server 2008 is just running my VB6 exe .it does not have VB 6 code or visual studio in it.
Is it something to do with encoding?Windows server 2008 is 64 bit and windows server 2003 was 32 bit.
Please help

The source to the image generator is also installed with the active x control package and can be seen in the start menu options.

What version of visual studio was being used on the 2003 machine? Was it 6.0 by chance?
If .Net is now being used on the 2008 machine this could be part of the problem.

Thank you for the update,

Does the image generator have the same problem?
If not you can compare the source code to the source of your project.

Hello,

Can you tell me which software package is being used. Are you using the code 128 font, the active X control, or something else?

Thank you.
