Problem Registering Font

I have an application written in Access 10.  It is installed in over 100 sites.  Just recently some users have been getting the attached error message after years of running the program without a problem.  It seems to be associated with the Access 10 Run Time.  If I repeatedly click on Ignore, Cancel, or Retry it tries to install it and fails, and rolls the update back.  If I do this 4 or 5 times and then start the application, it runs.

Any clues?

Thanks in advance.

Error 1907 occurs when a program is uninstalled and/or another program installed (usually Office 2000, 2010 or 2013) that does not install the ".TTF" files (font files with the .ttf extension).
The required font files need to be replaced to the "C\Windows\Font" directory (folder) on your hard drive .
The "sfc /scannow" command does not always remedy this. If not, follow the procedure below.
1. Create a temporary folder, [C:\temp]
2. *Search file, and in your Microsoft Office installation source (Office 2010), since this is what causes this error *most of the time.
*or search for: ", and" in the "proplusr.ww" installation directory of Microsoft Office 2000.
* (Office 2000 installation: search in the "drive\Windows\Fonts" directory.)

3. Copy all the ".ttf" files there to the "temp" folder you created.
Find and copy all the font files to your temporary folder. (Extract them all using Winrar or 7-zip, if they are in a cabinet ".cab" file.
4. "Paste" all the font files in to: 'C:\Windows\Font' folder of your hard drive. (overwrite all).

5. Re-start your program (Office, etc.) and the installation will complete with no further "Error 1907" warnings.


Try the fix above.
