Rich text formatted text not showing on some computers


We have a VB6 legacy application. It uses Crystal Reports 8.5.

For years, the RichTextBox control would write the RTF data back to the Access database.

The field would then be displayed on the report with the RTF format setting chosen on the Paragraph tab for formatting the field.

Recently, on SOME Windows 7 computers, the formatted field will not display. If we turn off the RTF formatting on the report, the field displays fine on that computer (although goofy looking because of the RTF characters).

What are we missing?
