I am having problems getting a custom postscript font to work on my Watch server.
I have a custom postscript font which I have installed using the "install postscript font" option of the Watch configuration tool. The font appears in C:\ProgramData\Objectif Lune\PlanetPress Suite 7\Fonts as a .pfb file and a .afm file.
I then import my PP document which uses this font.
I restart the PPWatch service and the Messenger service.
When I produce a sample pdf using this document, the font isn't there.
PPImage gives no errors when producing the pdf.
As a last resort I restarted the server, but it was no better.
I am running version 7.6.2.9999 on Win 2012 R2.

When d tried this on my old Win 2003 server it all worked ok.
Any ideas?
regards
Stuart

The name of the font had been corrupted. I redid everything very carefully and its now ok.
