yeah you unzip to C:\WINDOWS\Fonts

then you should be able to use it in all programmes you want...

Unzip it to wherever. Then just cut and paste the font file into your fonts folder. It should then show up as one of your fonts.

thats prob cos the font name that u unzipped isnt the same as the font name. u will jus have to look 4 it in word or a dtp program. its not hard u jus have to remember what it looks like

Here's what you have to do:

Step 1 - Unzip to the desktop

2 - Hilight the file, and right click, CUT. (ctrl + x also works)

3 - Open c:\windows\fonts and right click and goto PASTE

That should clear everything up. The thing with fonts is that when you cut and paste it, it installs it, it doesn't just simply move it. When you unzip, you're just putting the file in there w/o installing.
