Exception thrown: 'System.FormatException' in mscorlib.dll

I am using the demo from https://www.idautomation.com/font-encoders/dotnet-assembly/
When I am using C# Example, I see the error:
Exception thrown: 'System.FormatException' in mscorlib.dll
in the Console.

IDAutomation.Linear.FontEncoder FontEncoder = new IDAutomation.Linear.FontEncoder();
txtEncodedText.Text = FontEncoder.Code128(txtDataToEncode.Text);
txtEncodedText.Font = new Font("IDAutomationC128L", 12, FontStyle.Regular);
//Demo font is named "IDAutomationSC128L"
Target framework: .NET Framework 4.5.2. Windows Form Application.

This error may occur if the target .NET Framework is either corrupted or not installed. Since the issue cannot be reproduced with the same example on our systems, this is most likely the cause.

A FormatException exception can also be thrown when the format of a string is not well-formed. More information about this is provided in the Microsoft FormatException Class API Documentation.

If the issue still occurs with the same project on a different PC, add Try-Catch Statements in the code to narrow down the issue.
