    Font not found error message

    Can someone help me out on this.


    I have installed a TTF in Windows XP pro.

    This font can be found and used by certain programs like MS word, Corel draw....

    When I try to use the font with Ninja Monkeys Destinator 3 frontend
    I get a "font not found" error message

    Any help would be deeply appreciated

    Thanks

    You all just need to figure out what font was used in D3... try e-mail ninjamonkey.

    The Tahoma and Arial fonts are used in D3. These fonts do not support Greek in a specific address used by D3 so we had to change the font in the DLL and the .exe to ArialG which support Greek.
    One of the members "Seth" go this thing to work but the rest of us cannot.
    We tried using Seths modified files be still no success.

    What now ?

    From here you can't do much. I'm assuming that D3 was done in Vb6. Once its compiled its hard to change form properties on compiled software.

    You'd almost have to ask the person who wrote D3 to change the form's font to something compatible to greek letters.

    Do the letters come out alll garbled on the screen now ??

    Listen, there are two options here, 1. if you get the Error - "Tahoma font not found"... (I think 3 msgboxs one after another) than you have a error in you windows system, because the Destinator cannot find the font (although it is installed) that means that you have to fix the problem in Windows and not in the Destinator. (try running it on a diffrent computer, see if it works).

    2. if you see "crap" on your screen and not Greek Chars (I don't think this is the case) than you can look on the other thread where we talked about changing the DLL.

    Actually its the first case where the font is installed but destinator cannot find it.
    Is there anyway I can fix this in windows XP Pro ?
    I tried uninstalling and installing but nothing
