Fonts appearing as boxes on windows 98

  1. Dec 9, 2003 #1
    I got problems with fonts showing up as boxes. I recently copied all of my fonts from windows xp into the fonts directory in windows 98. Thats all I can think of that would be the problem. But going through and looking at the fonts with character map, none of them are screwed up. Does anyone know about fixing this?

    To quote dduardo “Try formatting. It always seems to fix window's problems.”
    You’ve got to admit, he’s not lying.

    If you thought to make a backup copy of the 98 fonts folder you could try restoring it, then checking to see if the problem was cured.

    There may be an easy cure for this but I haven’t played with my fonts enough to know what it could be.

    Good luck
