TO: All Tax Collectors and License Plate Agents

FROM: Carl. A. Ford, Director

Division of Motor Vehicles

SUBJECT: New Font Installation & Uniface 8/Solid Database Upgrade

A new "Reserve Personalized Plate Confirmation" page will be added with the upgrade to Uniface 8. In order for the new page to function properly, a font must be added to all workstations running FRVIS. If the new font is not installed, the appearance of the confirmation page will be distorted..

State maintained offices: The font has already been installed, and the Reserve Personalized Plate Confirmation should work properly.

County maintained offices: SAAS has copied the font file to each local agency server. To install the font, copy the file FL_VEHICLE.TTF located in a folder called \mv_fonts on the server’s public share (\\XXXXSBK01\public where XXXX is the county number and agency number) into the Windows Font folder on all workstations running FRVIS. The path to the Windows Font Folder for most 2000/XP machines is c:\Windows\Fonts and on most NT machines is c:\Winnt\Fonts. If you do not find the font folder in one of these locations, do a Windows File/Folder search for "fonts", and you should find the folder location. 

You may install the font as soon as you receive this memo. If you have questions regarding the installation of the font, please call SAAS. If you have installed the font correctly, but the Reserve Personalized Plate Confirmation still does not function properly, please call FRVIS. FRVIS and SAAS may be reached at 850-488-1641. If you have questions regarding the general functionality of the Confirmation, please call the DMV Helpdesk at 1-888-529-1780.

We have resolved the performance issue with the new SOLID Database and migrated eight additional sites last weekend to Uniface 8. We are ready to resume the statewide rollout of this release and have developed a schedule (please see attached) for its implementation at each site.

We appreciate you working with us on this important project. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the SAAS group at 850-488-1641.

Additionally, during the next several weeks, personnel from Data Set Ready, the vendor under state contract for cabling services, will be going to all Tax Collector offices to check for the possible location of new T1 circuits that are going to be installed during the next few months. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact Craige Goodman at (850) 414-0505.
