I just want to make sure, but is the font folder in Windows 7 and in Vista still "C:\WINDOWS\fonts" ?
If not, or if it's changeable, is there an available ENVAR that will point me there?
They are still there. Fonts can be installed outside of that directory by checking an option in control panel -> font settings, but even then you install the fonts by placing a shortcut in the fonts folder.
Great advice but what are the steps for doing this. This is like giving a little child a candy in a wrapper that they cant open. Unfortunately many forums are like this, only half of the solution is given or people post a problem but there is no FIX shown.
Becomes a total waste of time, I avoid most forums and answer sites for this reason. Frustrating to say the least.
Try This(worked for me) Start:Run: copy "%windir%\Fonts" from above and paste it into the open box and click ok. Sends you to Add Fonts Under folders (c:\windows\fonts) Click on Fonts Folder. list of fonts box will now populate. Find the font you want and click on install
