Code 128 Barcode Shrinks when using SAP Crystal Reports Runtime

I am using Crystal Reports 2020 Support Pack 1 (Version to design reports. The reports are run using SAP Crystal Reports Runtime (64 bit) (Version: The reports include a Code 128 barcode provided by IDAutomation. The fonts are installed on both the client PC and the server that runs the reports using the Runtime.

The fonts preview perfectly in the preview mode in both the Crystal Designer and when run using the Runtime. The fonts export perfectly to a PDF using the Export feature in the Crystal Designer, but when exported from the Runtime they shrink or totally disappear. I've tried different font sizes, but nothing works.

I've seen recommendations for changing Registry settings, but:

1. It is not clear if these settings need to be changed on the individual client PCs or the server that executes the Runtime.

2. The settings differ based on the version of Crystal Designer / Crystal Runtime, and I don't see anything that is associated with Crystal Reports Designer 2020 or Crystal Reports Runtime.
