Fonts missing on MAC Illustrator CS6

I upgraded Illustrator CS4 to CS6 on 10.6.8. When I would open files in CS4 the font would work just fine. Now in CS6 I get this error:


Font not found on the system; missing font has been substituted.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

These are the same fonts and same files that would open in CS4 but won't in CS6. I have been getting new graphics that will only work in CS5 or higher so going back to CS4 will not solve this problem in the future.  I am new to macs and fonts but have confirmed they are in the Font Manager and even tried to use FontExplorer X and it suggests some fonts that it wanted me to buy but the transactions would always fail so I went to linotype.com and downloaded the recommended font but the font gives me errors when I validate it.

Any help is appreciated

Found free versions of the fonts on fontspalace and even though it said it was a duplicate font it works.
