Lost Frutiger!

A friend of mine sent me a message with this request:

A quick question if I may - seeing as you're the font guru and alll.. somehow I've had a font disappear off my pc... It is "FrutigerSCINRmv1Roman" - I think it's an adobe font, which came with my CS3 web premium. Do you know how/where i could get it from again?

My response:

the easiest thing to do would be to check the CS3 disc for it. if that does not work (i can't see it with the CS3 package i have - design premium) maybe check any other software you have installed (like MS Office etc) to see if it came with that.

I'm guessing you didn't keep a backup for your HD or fonts folder?

if all else fails there are a few places you can buy it legally like:
like: http://new.myfonts.com/search/frutiger/fonts/

also i've posted your question on Typophile to see if anyone else has an idea.

does anyone have any other ideas?

All those extra letters in the middle of the name suggest strongly to me that this is some sort of customized version of Frutiger with a modified name. I would think about whether the company I worked for or some client had initials like "SCINRm" or something.

And in any case, I can promise you it did not come with any version of Adobe's Creative Suite.

Cheers,
