D sounds like your CD drive. The fonts here will likely be installed with the program on the disk. To add fonts to Windows, open Control Panel - Fonts and click File - Install New Font. Navigate to the location of the new font and install.

Actually the install is slightly different in Vista (sorry), just right click in the Fonts folder and select Install New Font.

Why? These are used by the install process. Not installed on your PC.
