php_gd2.dll brings out 'Could not find/open font...' on 

$array = @ImageTTFBBox($size,0,$font,$textstring).

[$font is a ttf-file in the same directory9

php_gd.dll works fine with SAME configuration...

Probably a bug in the [Win32]GD2?

greets, Lars

Same again in 4.2.1

Have tried all sorts of different methods to access font file name - including c:/, c:\ /, \ - also using realname() which was suggested on some mailing list somewhere.

Win2K, Apache 1.3.24, GD2

I had the same problem and solved it using the path to the windows font folder (c:/WINDOWS/Fonts/arial.ttf). Strange isn't it ??
