Locate a Font License

I'm trying to convert an rft document to PDF. it has a MICR font in it. The MICR font needs a license to display correctly; How can I tell Aspose where to look for the font license

the font is installed and the license is registered on the server; If I use MS word to convert to PDF, it finds the license; but when I convert in code using the Aspose.word API it does not find the license

I have solve the issue myself. When we installed the licensed font, it keeps the ttf files in it’s own folder and puts shortcuts in the Windows.Fonts folder.


I had to physically copy the ttf files to windows.fonts

Hi Jon,

Thanks for your inquiry.
It is nice to hear from you that you have found the solution of your issue.

Please note that Aspose.Words requires TrueType fonts when
rendering documents to fixed-page formats (PDF, XPS or SWF). Make sure
you have all the Fonts installed on your machine you’re using to convert
Word document to PDF format. I would suggest you please read the
following articles:

http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/wordsjava/How+to++Specify+True+Type+Fonts+Location
http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/wordsjava/How+Aspose.Words+Uses+True+Type+Fonts

Thanks for the response. I had already seen how to specify true type font location and had implemented it successfully; However, although Aspose was able to find the font, it appeared to be unable to reconcile the license specific to that font and therefore the output showed the “demo” character.


To be clear, the font I am using is a Licensed MICR font that had been correctly installed and licensed.
I was able to use the font correctly directly in MS Word but when converting to PDF only the demo version displayed
