CFDOCUMENT permission error

Posted in ColdFusion by rip747 on September 9, 2006

access denied (java.io.FilePermission c:\windows\fonts\arial.ttf read)
This is just something that I run into all the time when setting up a new site and it’s something that I always forget to do. When using CFDOCUMENT to generate PDFs, you will need to make sure that the hosting company grants READ access to the C:\WINDOWS\FONTS directory on the server for the CF user account. If not you will constant get errors when trying to use the CFDOCUMENT tag.
