Postscript Preprocessor Fails to Find Any Embedded Fonts

Article ID: 168542

Article Last Modified on 11/1/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0 Developer Edition
  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q168542

SYMPTOMS

If you print to a file from Windows NT using a postscript printer driver and then attempt to preprocess the data with a postscript preprocessor, the preprocessor fails to find any embedded fonts.


CAUSE

The Windows NT postscript driver was not correctly delimiting font information in the postscript output. The effect is that preprocessors do not find the font resources in the job, and, therefore, can not do any replacement or editing.

This problem has no effect on printing. It only affects preprocessors that try to edit the postscript output to replace resources.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 4.0. This problem was corrected in the latest U.S. Service Pack for Windows NT and Windows NT Server version 4.0.
