I'm looking for a c, c++ source to create a .fon file. (Raster font file). The font i created crashs when i try to install it in Win 3.1/95.
The name of my font is displayed Ok in the dialog box, but i can't go further. (Memory fault ...). I can't use it in any application program either.
My source is composed of two functions : LibMain and WEP returning the value 1 , and the fonts ressources. Nothing else. After compilation of this source, i rename the .DLL -> .FON

When you create a .FON file it must be a resource only DLL, i.e. it must have NO code at all.  I think that the only way of doing this is to create an Assembler stub to link the resources to, this would look somthing like this :

.xlist
include cmacros.inc
.list
sBegin CODE
; Create WEP, which does nothing (required to avoid the
; 'NO SEGMENT' warning
cProc WEP,<FAR, PASCAL, PUBLIC>,<si,di>
    parmW EntryCode
cBegin WEP
cEnd WEP
sEND   CODE
end

Compile this with MASM and link to your font resources.
