Without a sample file its impossible for us to tell either ;-)
Please attach a file that exhibits the problem, so we can reproduce it.

This is looking for a *CIDFont* called Adobe-Identity. This is the 'fallback'
font when a CIDFont can't be found, similar to using Courier when a regular
font is missing. 

I would expect that the problem is that the file uses a CIDFont which is not
embedded in the document. From your comment above I would guess the font is
Arial. Although you may have Arial installed, you probably have it installed as
a Font (in gs/Resource/Init/Fontmap.GS or some other font map file). You need
to install it as a CIDFont (in gs/Resource/Init/cidfmap) if you want to use it
as a CIDFont.
