WIndows CE6 and font styles

We have an application (developed with VS2008 and CF3.5) that works fine on many windows CE5 and WM6.5.3 devices.

We are trying to port it to MC2100 CE6.0, and after a while the app loses all the font styles: everything is reverted to 9pt Arial.

We built a sample app with just a label and a textbox, styles on Courier New 14pt, it starts fine with the correct fonts, but then if we minimize and restore it, font styles are gone.

Same happens if we put the label over a panel and we hide/view the panel a few times.


It seems that we're not the only ones with this problem, regarding the fonts:

Here's a sample that reproduces the problem.

Any suggestion?

which OEM version are you using on the MC21x0 you're testing?

you can find a description on where to find this information in MC21x0 user guide (page x):

With this information, if cannot fix it with the latests version of the OS available on our support website:

If the latest OS does not solve the issue, you should contact our Support through the distributors that sold you the device.
