Can't Install Fonts on a Windows ME VM
Posted on 2011-02-19
I had a PC running Windows ME with a number of fonts installed on it. I got rid of that computer, and built a VM on my Windows XP machine which runs Windows ME. (I have a device that the latest driver only works with Windows ME and nothing above)
I copied the FONTS folder from the old PC and is now on my XP machine. If I view the folder on my XP machine, I can see all the fonts. But if I try and view the folder from the VM, it only shows the fonts that match up to the ones already installed on the VM. The new fonts within that folder which I need to install don't appear just by browsing to the folder. If I go to install the fonts and point it to the directory to where the backup fonts folder resides, it can see them. But when I hit OK to install them, nothing happens. They are never installed.
Any idea what is going on?
