Help with Font & Symbol required!

Dear All,

I've been experiencing trouble viewing some symbols like the official Indian Currency Symbol on some websites like Steam and a couple of more. It is showing just a box instead of a correct symbol which I have attached below.

Can anyone please give me the exact font file so I could install it? I tried installing official Windows 7 Hindi Language pack but it does not continue download due to my OS does not meet the standards. All other symbols appear correct like for USD $, Euro, GBP etc.

INR Symbol

Do you have this or is this even applicable to your issue (i'm not sure)?

EDIT: that might only be for the ability to type the symbol not display it sorry.

Glad to hear it, wasn't sure if that was the right package needed to display the symbols or not. That was from 2012 so interesting that windows update did not ask you to get it itself.
