Windows 7: Cannot install a different face of a font

06 Feb 2015   #1

win 7 ultimate x64
Cannot install a different face of a font

This problem is happening with me the first time. I have downloaded a new font "eigerdals". It has 7 faces - black, heavy, bold, medium, light, regular and thin along with their italics. 14 different files alltogether.
I installed the "regular" one first. When I try installing another one it says "The eigerdals font is already installed. Do you want to replace it?". If I replace it, the previous one gets erased.
This is very strange since I have installed many fonts before and never faced this problem. It is an open type font.
In microsoft office word I can use this font and even make a bold or italics but it is a faux type and not visually appealing. I want to use every face available for this font. Can someone help me on how to install each font.
I am using a new copy of windows 7 ultimate x64. I use many designing software like photoshop, quark etc. Thanks in advance.
