Barcode's not printing correctly when using a CrystalReportViewer control inside of a IIS 6 website.

We have a developer that made a crystal report using the CrystalReportViewer control within Visual Studio 2005.  The problem is the barcode that prints inside of a 4 x 6 Zebra printer label, after hitting print from that website control, is distorted on some of the barcode lines and thus making it hard for the handheld scanner to read.

The wierd thing is when you export that report from within the CrystalReportViewer control to lets say a PDF it will print fine and can be scanned.

What in Internet Explorer or Crystal Reports Control would be causing this type of printing problem.

Any advice would be appreciated.  The attached graphic is a good barcode label from the pdf versus the bad from printing from the control.

Is the Text Size in Internet Explorer set to anything other than Medium?  View -> Text Size -> Medium.

Are you doing this on the same machine?

Was the report built using the Zebra printer as the default?

All,
I found the answer to my problem.  I thought I tried what ultimatly fixed it but apparently I overlooked it.  On the Zebra S4M printer was a setting for the Darkness level.  The default is 10 and once I turned it down to 1 the barcode lines didnt bleed together and I could scan them with the handheld scanner.

I originally was sure it had something  to do with IE or Crystal that was causing it but sometimes you just have to try every single easy option first then work your way into the difficult areas (crystal reports).

Thanks to all that tried to help.

P.S. Admin we can close this one as I found the solution.
