Launch Control Panel. Go into the Fonts control panel. Are the fonts you are looking for displayed? If not, click on the File menu, then click the menu item Install New Font...

Navigate to the Windows\Fonts directory (that's where you said you put them) and they should show up (along with many others). Select the ones you want to add (hold the control key down to select multiple while you click) and then click the Ok button.

Also, when in the Font Control panel, click the View... Options.. menu and select the TrueType tab. Check to see if the option to only show TrueType fonts is checked. If it is, and your fonts aren't true type, they won't be visible to applications.

Let me know how it turns out.

Hi David!
The fonts are displayed in Contol Panel/Fonts OK,
but I wondered more about the country specific settings,
and do I need to load ansi.sys or nlsfunc etc?

Here's a couple things to check out:

1. Are the fonts you added TrueType fonts? Do they show up in the Fonts control panel with a TT in their icon? If not, then see my initial answer regarding the "Show only TrueType fonts" option.

2. That you have a printer selected that supports TrueType fonts (not the Generic / Text only Printer)

I don't think it has anything to do with ansi.sys or nlsfunc. If after checking these options, the problem isn't resolved, go ahead and reject my answer so someone else can try to help.
