Actually, it is not at all surprising. Adding the "/3GB" switch in your boot.ini file does give you more 3Gbytes of addressable user virtual address space instead of 2Gbytes, but it also reduces the address space for the kernel from 2 Gbytes to 1 Gbyte. Fonts are loaded and rasterized in the kernel. Reducing the kernel address space by half makes it much more likely that you will run out of memory for resources needed by the kernel. (Thank you Google - I never heard of the /3GB switch until dzoge's posting.)
I am glad you posted this - I am sure other people will run into this problem, and the cause is not something that would be on most people's list to check.

I see. And as I understand I might not have got this problem is I had less fonts installed. I have about 1000 now.
Thanks Read Roberts.
For me it doesn't work even after removing the switch!
Any other solutions?
Have the same problem. I even did not switched 3GB ON but fonts does not work. The problem appeared right after re-installing Windows. Ill be very grateful for help.
This is a forum for font developers to discuss using Adobe's font development tools. If you're having problems making regular fonts work, that is best discussed on the forum for type manager & fonts for Windows, or perhaps in the typography forum.
