powerbuilder fonts urdu

powerbuilder version 12.5
I have powerbuilder installed in my pc.

I created a datawindow in some texts I used fonts "Alvi Nastaliq". I deployed my application
and it shows the urdu text correctly in my pc. but the urdu text is not being shown in other users pc.

I have copied all the fonts into user windows\fonts directory from my windows\fonts directory but the font is still not being shown correctly.

i have removed C:\Program Files\Sybase\Shared\PowerBuilder;C:\Program Files\Sybase\PowerBuilder 12.5 and executed the program , in my pc it still shows the urdu fonts correctly.

Why the urdu text  being shown as garbase in other users pc

No sir,

this installs jameel noorie nastaleeq with ttf extension

can a unicode font have extension .ttf

because right now i am trying alim_urdu_unicode font and it is also ttf

MehramAuthor Commented:
No sir alim_urdu_unicode also seems to be true type as it does not work.

We know powerbuilder 12.5 is purely unicode base so our target is to find urdu font which is truly unicode,

Am I correct sir?

It is also to be noted that the same font is working in my pc. and not working when deployed in users pc.

Kalpesh ChhatralaSoftware ConsultantCommented:
that means Unicode font is not working on your client PC.

try on some other PC or on Virtual Machine.

Urdu is national language of Pakistan and mostly spoken in sub continent.
It is written right to left.

in regional settings the option

install files for complex script and right to left language should be checked

it was unchecked in users pc.
