I have a vb.net application that incorporates Crystal Reports (I am using 2008 to design the reports). Basically it outputs data to a text file and then usesw that text file as the datasource for the report.

In my vb.net setup project I have added the Crystal Reports merge module file so that when my Application installs it installs the necesery crystal reports dlll's etc...

The application doesnt actually show the report in the Crystal Reports window, it automatically exports it to a pdf and opens that instead.

On my pc all is well, however on one of the users pc's when the pdf opens; anywhere in the document where there is a lower case "t" or "f" on the report there are 2 (i.e. the word "category" becomes "cattegoyr" and the word "from" becomes "ffrom"

this is really really odd - can anybody suggest what the problem could be?
