Fonts that work in WinME with ATM Deluxe 4.1.24 come up as invalid in WinXP.
I've bewen using a Dell laptop for about 8 years now: WinME and ATM Deluxe. I have thousands of fonts,PS, TT, and some OT. Most fonts work out of the box. Over the last decade I have modified fome fonts for any number of reasons: the designer didn't follow naming conventions (grr!); I added kerning tables with Kernus; I altered some glyphs with Font Monger; and converted a very few fonts from one format to another.
I recently got a refurbished Dell Latitude D820 with WinXP Pro SP2, 2GB memory, and a 2.15 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, and an NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110M video card.
Many of the fonts on my old machine, mostly PS, don't want to install, and come up as invalid. Some I tinkered with install fine; some that are the same as the day I got them do not. There's no consistency that I can see between which fonts install and which ones do not.
I Googled, and I found and tried a registry fix: "Oddly enough, the cause of the problem is apparently that the video card driver is larger than expected. Adding the below registry entry and rebooting the computer is reportedly the solution...." I tried that and the fonts appear to install, but, for example (in both Word and WordPerfect), Times Roman is substituted for Baskerville BE.
The fonts still work fine on my old machine. Any ideas on how I can fix the fonts or my machine or whatever so I can use use my PS fonts?
