Windows 7 Ult x64(x2), HomePrem x32(x4), Server 08 (+VM), 08 R2 (VM) , SuSe 11.2 (VM), XP 32 (VM)
 
 

weird as i have x64 on and it show it like i showed in the screenshot....
can you open cmd
cd into the directory "cd %WinDir%\fonts" where
and type "dir"
idk but the thing is that are font groups as you can see in my there are arial bold, italic ect and that is why there are alot more than is shown....
its wierd though as i did not do any config changes other than the ones that i said...
another would be "hide protected system files" have it unchecked and check again...
this will output every file in the fonts folder...

Easy enough to not need to read a tutorial on how to do it.

I have made sure that the fonts are not hidden. And after looking at garysgold screen shot, I have exactly the same icons appearing.

The fonts are there, I can use them in all my programs. Just can't hide or unhide what I can't see.

Hi SnapCount,

Do you have any font handling software installed?

Crap.... I dont believe this... Just installed the RC on my desktop and low and behold... 10 fonts show up.... Go to my laptop and installed RC from the same DVD and guess what.... 201 fonts show up WTF!

Hi garysgold,

No, i dont have any font handling software. It seems to me like its for some strange reason - its hardware related. CRAPNESS

You can also right click and go "Install." I did that in version 7100, so I can't verify if it works in previous builds.
