    Why is it not possible?
    Is it because the PC's are not networked?
    Or you can't view the original fonts ?

    Leif,

    What I wanted is copying some fonts from the font folder of machine 1 to the font folder of machine 2
    But what I understod from the weblink was, that a font has to be installed (not copyed)

    I think it needs to be installed so that Windows knows it is there - if you just copy it to the font folder it will not necessarily be recognised.

    Try:
    Copy the font you want from PC1 to a floppy disc.
    Put the floppy into PC2
    Follow the instructions from the article to 'install' it into PC2 from A: - it will also make a copy to the font folder on PC2.

    Leif,

    Your solution seems to work for True Type fonts, but I need a non TrueType font to copy.
    Only the TrueType fonts can be installed via this option (It doesn't show the oter fonts to install)

    Re: Copying fonts

    What fants and type are you trying to copy?

    There are many non TTF web sites, you may be able to locate a copy that way also.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave,

    We had some problems with euro fonts, but I tnink we have traced the original fonts, so we install them
    Thanks for thinking with me.
