Bug Report - PDFViewerControl and System Currency Settings

If I use an instanced PDFViewerControl in code and print via PrintDialog, it resets the system currency settings for FormatCurrency() replacing the $ with a ¤.

On that note, I am unable to print with said instanced control. I have to use the PrintDialog. I can print directly if I use a control on a form.

I've attached a demo application that shows the bug in action. I'm also putting the code here though whoever looks at this will need to make the corresponding form.

I'm also not including the SyncFusion DLL files. I am including a test pdf.

Public Class Form1
    Private Sub cmdShowCurrency_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles cmdShowCurrency.Click
        txtShowCurrency.Text = FormatCurrency(1.25)
    End Sub
    Private Sub cmdOpenFile_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles cmdOpenFile.Click
        Dim OpenPDF As New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.PdfViewer.PdfViewerControl
        If chkPrintWithoutPrintDialog.Checked Then
            Dim dialog As New PrintDialog()
            dialog.AllowPrintToFile = True
            dialog.Document = OpenPDF.PrintDocument
        End If
    End Sub
End Class
