Hi allicon_smile.gif

I am trying to download/activate a font (a Hindi font, KrutiDev 46). I have been sent the ttf file and have files it under the "fonts" folder in my system. I use Windows XP.

I am now trying to "activate" the font in order to open a Hindi translation I have been sent in this font.

I managed to do it somehow with a Gujerati font a few weeks ago but I think I arrived there through trial and error.

If anyone knows of any step-by-step instructions I would be extremely grateful.

Thank you

Simply copying a font to the fonts folder is not enough for Windows Nov 5, 2009

You have to use the Fonts section from the Control Panel on your computer. You might want to read some instructions.
