Hello Experts

I have installed CS4 on my PC and I am having some font missing from the application.
I used to have the Courier Stnd, Regular and Medium in CS2 and have made most of the documents using these fonts. Now when I open one of the existing file in CS4, I am an error message saying few fonts are missing and then a find a font box coming up with missing font names marked with yellow !.

I dont know how to add these fonts back into the CS4.

Please can you advise how to do this?

    I don't know why installing CS4 would corrupt fonts, but it sounds like you are going to have to reinstall the Courier font family on your PC.

    First make sure you close Photoshop before installing the fonts.

    To install fonts in Windows Vista:

    To install fonts for Windows XP (and previous):

    After you reinstall the fonts, now try opening the Photoshop file. You should not get any "fonts missing" errors.

    I hope this helps!
