Bold font issue with uarial package [closed]

I am using uarial for typesetting my document in Arial, but I found that there's no bold font. How can I have a boldface font with the uarial package?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{uarial}
\renewcommand\familydefault{\sfdefault}
\begin{document}
\textbf{sample data}
\end{document}

You did not provide a minimal working example (MWE). So I guess, you forgot to set the font encoding to “T1”, cf. Herbert’s answer. – Speravir Feb 19 '13 at 15:15

I cannot see it:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{uarial}
\renewcommand\familydefault{\sfdefault}
\begin{document}

foo \textbf{bar}

\end{document}
