                  MessageBox.Show(this, Properties.Resources.selectLanguage, strProgName);

              this.toolStripStatusLabel1.Text = Properties.Resources.OCRrunning;
              this.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor;
              this.pictureBox1.UseWaitCursor = true;
              this.textBox1.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor;
              this.toolStripBtnOCR.Enabled = false;

              this.toolStripProgressBar1.Visible = true;
              this.toolStripProgressBar1.Style = ProgressBarStyle.Marquee;

              OCRImageEntity entity = new OCRImageEntity(imageList, index, rect, curLangCode);
              entity.ScreenshotMode = this.screenshotModeToolStripMenuItem.Checked;

              // Start the asynchronous operation.
          catch (Exception ex)

Do you mix up "font" and "encoding"?
Never did I download any "Tamil font dll" but I can see Tamil text in .Net applications, web browser etc. Does your "font" require some special - custom? - encoding?
