Installation Notes

Both types of installers will be made available for download upon purchase.

Overview of what the .exe installer does

  • Install the Barcode Font Encoder on your system. The Font Encoder is a software application that generates barcodes using fonts.
  • Install .Net DLL, Excel formulas, Crystal Reports formulas, Java libraries and development samples into the Resource subfolder.
  • Install True Type fonts on to your system with your permission. During installation you will be prompted whether to allow the installer to copy the fonts into your "C:\Windows\Fonts" folder automatically.

Uninstall Instructions for the .exe installer

  • On your system, go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\ConnectCodeTrial" or the location where the software is installed.
  • Double click on Uninstall.exe.
  • Click on the "Yes" button followed by the "Uninstall" button. This will uninstall all the fonts and software on your system.

Windows installation notes

Important : It is recommended to close all other applications before proceeding with the installation.

The reason is because the installer set up the barcode fonts by copying the files into the Windows fonts (C:\Windows\Fonts) directory. Some software applications may be using Windows fonts and this may block the Copy process. If you are in the middle of the installation process and notice that the installation has stalled, simply shut down other applications to let the installation resume.

Windows Server installation notes

For Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012, 2016 or 2019, it is recommended that you choose "No" when the installer requests to setup the fonts for you automatically. After the installation, follow the steps below to setup the fonts for your server.

  • Click on the Start button and click Run.
  • Enter the following command : %windir%\fonts
  • Click OK.
  • On the File menu, click on Install New Font
  • In the Folders box, click the folder that contains the font that you want to add, and then click OK. ConnectCode Barcode Fonts is by default installed in the directory C:\Program Files\ConnectCode (or ConnectCodeTrial)
  • In the List of fonts box, click the font that you want to add. You can add all ttf (TrueType fonts) files in the ConnectCode directory. To select more than one font at a time, press and hold the CTRL key while you select each font.
  • Click to select the Copy Fonts To Fonts Folder check box.
  • Click OK.

Problem (Usually rare)

If you get the following error when running the Font Encoder:

"This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect."

Which installer will I receive when I purchase?

You will receive both the .exe and .msixbundle installers.

Troubleshoot MSIX Installation (Usually rare)

    This is usually not required. You can also turn off Developer Mode after installing the package.
