The thing is, when i install these fonts, they work OK. But, for some reason in the fonts directory, they're named like:



etc. And i was fine with it up until today. When i realized Autocad 2009 is denying to work, i found out that it was something with the fonts, moved them to desktop then after moved back, everything was back to normal.

I think some registry key was not functioning right. I'll look in to it later (:

Just to let you guys know.





Here is the screenshot f the corresponding registry entry, after a successful and fresh installation.


And this a part is from HiveSft.inf file. Comparing to rest, it all seems normal.

Look in [strings] the values should be there

It may also be that it cannot find CONFIGURE_PROGRAMS="Set Program Access and Defaults" in the strings section, because after this line the "ExtraFileEdit" will add those string values

CONFIGURE_PROGRAMS="Set Program Access and Defaults"
calibri = "Calibri (TrueType)"
calibri_bold = "Calibri Bold (TrueType)"
calibri_italic = "Calibri Italic (TrueType)"
calibri_bold_italic = "Calibri Bold Italic (TrueType)"
segoe_ui = "Segoe UI (TrueType)"
segoe_ui_bold = "Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)"
segoe_ui_italic = "Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)"
segoe_ui_bold_italic = "Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)"
segoe_print = "Segoe Print (TrueType)"
segoe_print_bold = "Segoe Print Bold (TrueType)"
segoe_script = "Segoe Script (TrueType)"
segoe_script_bold = "Segoe Script Bold (TrueType)"
simhei = "SimHei (TrueType)"

Well... That section is called like below in Turkish systems. (:

CONFIGURE_PROGRAMS="Program Erişim ve Varsayılanlarını Ayarla"

I've added these to the necessary sections. I think it'll be fine now.

Thank you Rick.

Well, thinking of all the people using this pack, i must admit i am quite surprised to be the one finding this bug.

I've edited the necessary section within my .inf file. But if you make that change, i may use it when i am to build a new release from scratch.

This is pretty much all you need in your entries_fonts.ini

description=Fonts addon description.
title=Fonts pack


HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts","Font 1 Example (TrueType)",,"font1.ttf"
HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts","Font 2 Example (TrueType)",,"font2.ttf"


font1.ttf = 100,,,,,,,22,0,0,,1,22
font2.ttf = 100,,,,,,,22,0,0,,1,22


When you are done making your addon and you want me to give it a glimpse to see if its OK, go ahead and post it here
