Oracle Reports problem

Oracle Reports 6i
I am migrating an old classic asp with vb5 mts application from Windows NT to a Windows 2003 server (with no documentation). The application is used to send faxes via Goldfax, and it creates the faxes using Oracle Reports 6i, which is where I am having the problem. In order for Goldfax to be used to send the faxes correctly, it needs to recognise “keywords” in the header page, and these keywords “must be formatted using the HP Courier typeface (not TruType)” – according to Goldfax documentation.



Software/Hardware used:
Windows 2003, COM+,VB5, Oracle 8, Oracle Reports 6i, Goldfax

    Firstly, it seems that the format of my message didn't appear correctly, so it is pretty hard to read, so apologies for that. I have managed to sort out the font problem, so now I just have the problem of the VB5 COM+ application not running the Oracle Report and sending it to the printer. It looks like only the first page of the report is run, and it is not being sent to the printer. Does anyone have any experience with COM+ applications running Oracle reports? It all worked fine on Win NT and MTS. Are there any Report settings that I would need to change due to the solution using COM+ on Windows 2003 server? Will any of the Report Escapes be causing a problem? A brief description of the remaing problem is>> "The vb5 com+ application builds a command line instruction and executes it (pretty much like I did from the command prompt), however, this time, the RWRUN60 process only uses the same mem usage as the others did for the first page (when run from command prompt or from Report Runner), and then it closes down, and doesn’t send it to the GFAX printer. This is the major problem, since I can’t really debug the app (other than in machine code, which I can’t read too well). There are no entries in the Event Viewer which suggest that something went wrong, and the application doesn’t return any errors."
