I have a RDP server(windows 2012) that has Adobe reader DC installed on it. When some users open pdf files what is viewed is a lot of jumbled words and a lot of @ symbols. I upgraded to the latest version. I believe a hot fix is required. See the attachment. If I copy the data into a word document it is perfect and the way it should read.Any ideas

I am not really a RDP expert but this would on desktop look as a font issue. That PDF appears to rely on system fonts which if not present renders them illegible. So it may be a font encoding issue or simply the need to embed the fonts in the PDF.
