Yes I can use them all.
I wish I knew why mine doesn't. I see you are using W7 Pro and mine is W7 Home Prem. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Quite easily. Even when I was using a computer with only 1 Gb of memory and XP, Paint and wordpad were able to use each and every font.

I have the original fonts that come with Windows. Wordperfect adds a couple hundred and PrintShop adds another bunch along with a few I downloaded.

Vista x64 / 7 X64

Works ok for me too.

I am using Pro.

Haven't got premium installed so can't check.

It would be odd if that was some kind of limitation due to Edition.

A simple workaround.

I have a workaround for this issue that works for me.

Open up MS Word. Select the font that you want in to use.
Type something in the required font.
Select and copy what you typed.
Tab back to MS Paint.
Click on the "Text" button to open up the text input frame.
Paste the copied text into the text input frame.
And voila. The text is in the required font in MS Paint. Furthermore you will notice that the required font is also selected in the font selection field. So any time you want to enter any new text it will be in the font you want, until you change the font again to something else.
