This is not FDK-related.
There IS a long thread in the adobe.atm.type.windows forum, with a
link to an article by Tom Phinney about similar problems.
For your convenience, here's the link - but I'd strongly suggest
reading that thread - many of the problems are related to Nvidea
drivers. The subject of the thread is "Unable to install Type 1 fonts
in Windows XP"
Herb thank you very much! Sorry for the incorrect section post. Post number 65 on the thread you mentioned fixed the problem. I'd also like to point out that I am on an ATI video card.
thanks again :)
The video driver problem actually can occur with both Nvidia and ATI cards, but it is specific to Windows XP.
You say the fonts fail to show up in Adobe applications. Which ones? Do the fonts show up in other applications?
OTF didn't show up in any applications till I made the registry tweak and rebooted. Something to do with cache size from the looks of the tweak.
That's very interesting, because the word from HP/Nvidia was that the problem was specific to XP. So apparently that is not the case, since that fix worked for you on Vista x64.
