Hi,
I am using vb 6.0 and crystal reports8.0 for my application. While programming, i explicitly changed crystal reports font to "Roman 12cpi" in .dsr that i used and also for each and every text object in coding. while taking print out(without vertical lines) directly, the printing speed is good. but when i build exe and setup, then install the application, the font in report changes to "Times New Roman". Though i have given "Roman 12 cpi" for all text objects, why it is not affected. How to get "Roman 12cpi" font in application.Thanks in advance.

Moorthy.
