I have just purchased the Megafont XXL2, and I am getting the same message regarding the registry, even when I run the Fontman.exe directly from the CD (as an administrator). [I have Windows 7 premium 64bit].
I had another error message, this time regarding the ZIP.DLL, but I have not been able to repeat this.
A further error message related to a problem saving a CFG file in the Windows folder.
Another restriction seems to be creating font groups. Granted, I am not sure how these are supposed to work, as I have not yet found a manual or help file. But I would have thought that the groups should be remembered from one session to the next. Perhaps this bug relates to the inability to save the CFG file.
When will the program be updated? (And how will we obtain this?)
At the very least there should be some information regarding the problems so that a prospective purchaser has the full
information before laying out money. However, even this will not help existing users in my situation.
It is a shame that the Font Manager problems mar the experience of managing such an impressive range of fonts. Especially as the control advertised by the Font Manager was the deciding factor for me to make the purchase.
