Tahoma is a windows system font.... not sure why it would be 'missing'
When I try to start the app, i got the message " Application Font Tahoma not found.."
And when I click Ok i got this message "Maneuver Windows Font Tahoma not found"
But i got the font, and I tried to install it from a computer where the D3 app works?
What to do??
you have the font, to install it do the following
open up control panel, in there click on the font icon.. a folder will open with all your currently installed fonts.. just copy the font into it.. you should see a message saying installing font for a second
I know how to install fonts, and i have tryed this! but it arent helpingOriginally Posted by CdRsKuLL

Do you have a lot of fonts? (ie, in the thousands)

no, 355 installed
I'm new to this CarPC lark and just starting down the road of an install.
I had the above on a laptop with XP SP2. Tahoma was indeed installed, however this is how I got around it...
Make a new folder named "stored fonts" stick it wherever you want I choose my docs.
Open control panel then the fonts folder.
Copy (and I'll reiterate COPY) the entire contents of the original font folder to your "stored fonts" folder.
Sorry I see I missed a bit out, after copying, delete all the fonts in the original fonts folder in control panel.
You'll get some messages stating that windows can't move certain fonts, ignore them.
Once the copying process has completed, close the open windows and restart system.
Windows will reinstall the required fonts one of which is Tahoma.
My map monkey now opens without the Tahhoma error.
You may find some programs having problems finding fonts, depends what you running. You can copy individual font's or tell any programs to use another font if required.

No defo copy them, windows programs (and other software looks for fonts they don't install in their own created folder) look for the font's in the original location as far as I see it.
The reason for copying them is so if a program need a particular font to work correctly you can return it to the windows font folder.
Windows demands some fonts for dialog boxes ect so reinstalls some when it detects they are not present.
Works for me.
Another Plus point is quicker boot up as windows is not loading all those surplus fonts it doesn't require.
