Windows 7: Only 2 of 6 installed fonts appearing in Font Manager

08 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit machine
Only 2 of 6 installed fonts appearing in Font Manager

I've searched most places, and tried most of the tricks but still no success.

I have a set of 6 Frutiger fonts that I need for an Indesign project. They installed and worked fine on my old 32bit XP machine. I've now tried to install them on the 64bit Windows 7.

They all install fine. But then only two (2) appear in the Font Manager (and thus for my software).
I've checked the directory - the files are all there. Same with the registry - all there. But Windows 7 is only making 2 of the 6 available!

I've even tried clearing them all out (and the reg entries) and reinstalling them (as administrator) with the same result.

The only thing is that the 6 are part of two font families (if I check them in a font editor) so it appears that the Font Manager is not distinguishing them as a family in this case - but if for some other fonts (e.g. Bell MT)!

What's going on?

Ta, Lloyd.
