barcode font IDAutomationHC39M is *not* showing up SSRS Tiff export

Hi ,

I  have a SSRS report that uses barcode font IDAutomationHC39M to generate the barcode for the employee number.
I created a text box for that field and used this font.
We need to have this report in as .Tiff file.
When i run this report in VS 2008 and export and save it as  Tiff file,it shows the barcode with employee number underneath.
But after deploying the report in report manager,when i run the report in report manager and export it .Tiff it shows only employee number not the barcode,
I have installed IDAutomationHC39M font in report server and in my local machine.
What could be the issue and how to fix it?

Thank you,

Please have a look at:

"Very good work!! Thank you. Your reboot recommendation worked for myself as well. YAY! It would seem the Fonts are cached & installing the font doesnt re-initialize the cache in RS."

As much as we don't like reboot it may be necessary?
