    Based on this document (https://www.usps.com/election-mail/creating-imb-election-mail-kit.pdf) I need a specific encoder and font to properly display an Intelligent Mail barcode.

    The font is simple enough.  I downloaded and installed the uspsFontsNonAFP-1.4.0.zip to install it.

    The encoder is another not as obvious.  I'm trying to install this encoder (uspsEncoderMsWindows64-1.2.0.zip).

    I can't find anything about creating a new encoder in any of your documentation.

    Can you please tell me how to do this?

    Thanks!

    The encoder is another not as obvious. All USPS employees can use Liteblue.  I'm trying to install this encoder (uspsEncoderMsWindows64-1.2.0.zip).
