    Windows XP can’t install Open Type Font (OTF)

    It is not possible to install Open Type Font (OTF) into my PC running on Windows XP. I tried to install through folder and copy and paste feature. In both cases, I got the error message “Unable to install (font) (OpenType) font. The font file may be damaged. Check with your font vendor about obtaining a new file”. How can I resolve this problem?

    First of all, you need to login to the system with administrator account. Then, click the ‘Start’ button and choose ‘Run’ from the start menu. Type regedit into the ‘Open’ field afterwards and press the ‘OK’ button. This will open up the ‘Registry Editor’ in your system. Go to the left pane of the registry editor and navigate into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management. Find out ‘SessionImageSize’ key afterwards from the available options. If you can’t find that key, then go to right pane and right click on an empty space. You can then find a short menu from which choose ‘DWORD value’. A REG_DWORD will be created on the right pane after that. Rename it to SessionImageSize and double click on it. After that, set the value of the key to 20 and quit the registry editor for saving the changes.

    Go to Control Panel.
    Click on your Start button and select Settings > Control Panel (or Open My Computer then Control Panel)
    Go to your Fonts folder.
    Open (Doubleclick) the Fonts folder.
    Go to Install New Font.
    Select File | Install New Font.
    ind the directory/folder with the font(s) you want to install.
    Use the Folders: and Drives: windows to move to the folder on your hard drive, a disk, or CD where your new TrueType or OpenType fonts are located.
    Find the font(s) you want to install.
    TrueType fonts have the extension .TTF and an icon that is a dog-eared page with two overlapping Ts and require only this one file for installation and use. OpenType fonts have the extension .TTF or .OTF and a little icon with an O and require only this one file for installation and use.
    Highlight the TrueType or OpenType font to install from the List of fonts window.


    Install the font(s).
    Click OK. This completes your TrueType or OpenType font installation.
