'No Fonts' invoking commondialog.showfonts in W2K VB6

Posted on 2001-06-30
Last Modified: 2013-12-03

I wish to invoke the commondialog1.showfonts function. The colour pallette works fine under win 2000 but it claims There are no fonts installed, please go to control panel and install fonts. There are lots of fonts !
I am running VB6.0 SP3

Any ideas?
