Windows 7: Postscript fonts folder is win7 as Xp just paste folder to C ?

Postscript fonts folder is win7 as Xp just paste folder to C ?

Before I do as I have always done on previous OS's, that is, after a new build OS, copy paste the folder PSfonts from my backup back onto C drive, as the PSfonts folder always is at address C:\ is this ok for win7, or have things changed ?

If not ok, whats the method to get hundreds of Postscript fonts and their folder onto win7 ? I have had them for many years.

It should work, main thing is that the programs you have can find that Folder. Sometimes a program is coded to look in the same place/s for things it needs.

It definitely depends on the program.

I use Aegisub to create/edit subtitles.
If I navigate to the Windows Fonts folder, it can't see any fonts!

I have another folder with all of the fonts stored in it (in my Downloads partition).
If I navigate to it, I can select the desired font.

No, one needs to double click the pfm file and install each one, great if you have hunreds like me,
Win7 for you again.
