Crystal report with IDAuto barcode fails to run on Business Objects 3.1 server

Hi Support,
I have a crystal 2008 report that works great on my desktop, however when I deploy that on boxi server {business objects 3.1} it is not producing the barcodes.
We have added u25idautomation.dll to the server. The report is running fine. However, instead seeing the barcodes we are seeing charters like
"Ím:$)XOÎ."
"Ím<!7H2Î"

Please let me know how to resolve this issue.

Thank you

Regards


Operating System: Windows

Application: Business Objects 3.1 32 bit

What is being observed is the encoded text (which means the UFL is working properly). When using barcode fonts, it is necessary to have the font installed on any system accessing the report to see the barcode correctly, as fonts reside on a per-system (not per server) basis, which is the nature of fonts.

The recommended product for the described implementation would be the Native Barcode Generator for Crystal Reports, which is embedded into the report itself.
