Issue with installing and using Megafont XXL 2.0

Postby Nicsam » Fri Feb 24, 2012 2:45 am

Hello,
I hope someone can help me. I just bought Megafont XXL 2.0 and when I try to install it I get this message:

Registry could not be opened for Software\Microsoft\windows NT\CurrentVersion\Type 1 Installer\Type 1 Fonts.

It then will open the font manager even though it is not installed. So if I try to install a font I get this message:

Write error. Disk full or insufficient rights to write in the destination folder.

I am running Windows 7 Pro version. I have tried to change the compatibilty settings for the program but that doesn't make any difference.
Any suggestions on what else I can do?
Thanks so much!

You need to run the font installer as administrator (right-click on the application icon and choose "Run as administrator").

The message at the beginning is harmless and can be ignored.

Hi Martin,
I tried that and I still get the same message: Registry could not be opened for Software\Microsoft\windows NT\CurrentVersion\Type 1 Installer\Type 1 Fonts.
Any other thoughts?
Thanks so much.

As I said, the message at the beginning is harmless and can be ignored. When you click it away, the font manager will run.

I don't get that message though. When I insert the CD it automatically starts installing. So I just opened the contents of the CD and right clicked on "run as administrator" and then I still get that same message.

And does it work if you click that message away, select a font in the font manager and click on "install"?

No, when I click that message it just knocks me out of the program.

I don't know why this happens. I never heard of such a problem with the font manager. You can still install the fonts. Just copy the desired files from the CD to you HDD, unzip them and copy the font files to the font folder of your system (should be C:\WINDOWS\Fonts).
