Try printing to the windows printer, check 'preview'. If the barcode shows up in the preview display, it's probably an issue with the conversion from bwprint to PDF.

Also ensure that the text field where your barcode data is stored has enough room for prefix and suffix control characters. Start with something like 40 characters for a 9 character order number then reduce size until you no longer get an acceptable barcode.

If the barcode doesn't work in windows printer/preview, you should check the 'type09' file in your $BSE/lib/barcode/<device> folder. This is the file that appends the prefix and suffix control characters into the string sent to bwprint/printer.
