    W7 fonts & their availability in XP virtual?

    W7 & XP virtual are working fine. My reason for using XP virtual is a graphics program I've used for yrs.
    Noticed when I'm in that program in XP virtual mode some fonts don't render, (they are OK in W7 mode but not XP mode) all I get are sm boxes in XP mode. What did MS do to the font function? "A TTfont by another name is still a TTfont."
    If I add the special fonts I used previously w/XP, will they work in XP mode? There are about 145 in W7 fonts folder now and I don't want to mess things up.

    cheers,

    XP in XP mode is distinct and separate from Win7. If fonts are missing in XP you need to add them.

    Adding XP fonts.

    Thanks for the info. I asume you mean I should add the fonts I want to the fonts folder under W7. However that does not answer the question of why I can't see or use the same fonts that I can use under W7 in my XP virtual app?

    cheers,

    If you want the fonts in XP you must add them in XP. XP running in XP mode & Win7 do not share those sorts of resources.

    You must have XP mode running and it is in the same place as any other XP installation - C:\windows\fonts.

    What is the proper way to post.

    Joe,

    Thanks for the tip, what is the best/correct way to post to thank link participants?

    FYI: this forum has provided more fast, solid, solutions to the IFAQ of W7 & XP virtual. Equal to & even better than MS. MS did a very good job on their SW, but to make all versions of W work, esp W7/XPV. Over that last 20+ yr I need/used many very small 3rd party apps from the web to make the "business & marketing process" smooth & efficient.

    cheers,

    See Creating links at Bbcode.org. I prefer using the method that includes a name.

    No. In post #7, you said you found some links on the Microsoft site. I thought those might be of interest to other users and were the ones that I meant.

    Joe,

    A tech named Mario gave me these links. He intimated this was the only info (other than calling support, etc) that MS supplies for their products. I was told they did not have specific info on XP virtual. I'm going to search the web & local book stores, specifically XP virtual mode, and how it operates so I can improve my business & marketing process.

    I'll post what I find. Even the short time I used it, I'm learning a lot. And I'll be glad to pass on & help. XP virtual is working a lot better than the local techies indicated. Out of the box,XP virtual worked except for the dearth of operating info. I've looked at a lot of FAQ's but no IFAQ's. You guys have done swell job in helping me.

    I posted a separate Thank You post for the forum's help.
