I'm running XP 64 Bit on an Asus P5Q Pro, Intel Core 2 Duo 8400, 8 GB of memory with an ATI 4670 video card, latest drivers.
I've been unable to install (legal) Type 1 fonts from Adobe & Letterhead.
I used the registry hack in detailed in Reply # 65
Letterhead fonts lists a hack here:
The hack worked for me.
Thanks to all those that have posted.
THANK YOU also from Barcelone! After hours with many support people no one could figure out why in some of our Dell Vostro fonts Type 1 loaded at the first time and the same files returned and error like bad file in other Vostro same model...until your post. Take sure I will always mention the source ie YOU and this forum. You deserve it!...Obviousle the Vostros that loaded ok at first time didn't get the Nvidia card installed.
You might simply try booting XP with VGA mode enabled. See this MS doc on how to do that:
If that enables you to install the fonts, you can simply do that when needed, then go back to normal.
Also, I just worked with a customer who dit the above, but then also got an updated (older?) driver from their PC manufacturer, and that also solved the problem.
Thanks!!! Just ran into the same problem on a Dell Latitude D620 with WinXP, SP3 and found this discussion thread. Problem solved.
