Bar code shrinks when converting to PDF

I've designed a report in Crystal Reports 2011 that uses a bar code font from IDAutomation. When I export this to PDF, everything looks fine. However, when I access this report through a web application I developed in VS 2008 and convert it to PDF, the bar code shrinks. The application uses the CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine version 10.5. Is there an update or other solution to this issue?

    Never a good idea to create a report in a version that is essentially 4 higher (e.g.; CR 11, CR 11.5, CR 12, CR 13) than the runtime engine.

    As you are using .NET 2008, I'd recommend obtaining CR 2008 (12.x) and see how this works out for you. Note that CR 2011 does not include any SDK. The equivalent SDK is in Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010. This SDK is for VS2010 only and is available from here:

    Eval of CR 2008 can be downloaded from here:

      Thank you very much. I actually went the opposite direction and downloaded the trial version of Visual Studio 2010, and the problem was solved, even using the 10.5 runtimes. I will update the runtimes as well and try to keep things in sync going forward!
