Making new fonts available to IIS AppPool on Server 2019 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently upgraded our web server from 2012 R2 to 2019.  One of our ASP.NET apps uses XtraReports from DevExpress to generate pdf reports, however the new fonts are not being recognized and instead the fonts are being substituted.  The fonts are the Arial Narrow family and here's how I installed them.

    1. I copied the font files from my Windows 10 machine to the C:\Windows\Fonts folder on the Server 2019

    2. I added registry entries to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

    3. I rebooted the server

    I don't know why, but there must be an extra step required for the new fonts to be available to the App Pool.
