Have fresh install of Win7.   Installed our site add-on fonts (1700+).  Go thru the install process, but the item count does not increase.  New fonts not available to applications.  Registry shows fonts loaded to system.   CMD prompt DIR of C:\windows\fonts shows fonts loaded.
Rebooted, re-installed, deleted-reinstalled, etc.   Nothing will get these fonts to be recognized.  Have recreated problem on 2 other PCs.  Have about 10 other Win 7 PCs for which these same fonts have been installed and have had no problems.  Same source library used on all the PCs.
Have researched internet and this is a problems has been experienced by others, but no solutions found.    There used to be a MS Powertoy program that "fixed" problems loading fonts in WinXP, but that is not available.   Have downloaded NexusFontManager (freeware) and it finds all the fonts in the C:\windows\fonts directory.   How can I get all the fonts to be available to applications.  Please advise.  thanks.
