Win XP RDP client fails to print Calibri font correct when connected to Win 2008 Server

Posted on April 11, 2011

Windows XP users using RDP to a Windows 2008 server may experience issues printing documents that contain Calibri. Locations that are not formatted with Calibri will print normally. This issue persists when using the Easy Print feature with XPS.

This is a known issue and Microsoft has released a hotfix for it.
Sadly, as you read the attached hotfix info you will notice that you have to call them to get the file.

(although we recommend calling microsoft to get it, you can likely find it online somewhere)

After installation, the RDP clients were printing Calibri correctly.
