Problem loading fonts

  edenworkshops 15:14 15 Oct 2008


I am running Windows XP and I wanted to install a couple of adobe fonts.

I tried just dragging and dropping the fonts into the fonts folder, but when I do I am given this error message.

"Unable to install the font. The file was not found or could not be opened"

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you

Have you tried rebooting? Windows loads the fonts each time it starts so this might refresh.
Looking at adobe website XP should have no problems with open type fonts:

"Microsoft® Windows® 2000, XP and Macintosh OS X. OpenType fonts peacefully co-exist with current font formats and can be used in the same document alongside Type 1 and TrueType fonts."
