777 Gauge / Font Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,I have the same problem as many others here: I re-installed the 777 and the gauges don't show any text anymore. I have read in dozens of posts that there are supposedly those 2 fonts in the windows/fonts folder missing. This is not so! As many other users mentioned: those 2 files are still present.I haven't heard any working solution as far. Support, please advice.ThanksUwe

Uwe,Sorry. The font problem is usually vert straightforward. Did you try the following [picked up from an earlier thread]:This is a font issue with Windows, at initial install it all works fine, but one you reinstall for some reason Windows gets into a funny mood and refuses to recognize the fonts, the solution,* Look in your C:WindowsFonts folder and find Baloo.ttf and IRS_____.TTF.* Copy the fonts out.* Delete them from the fonts folder* Restart* Use control panel to re-install the two named fonts.* Start 777Do not know why this should work [but anything is possible with windows!]RegardsJohn Rooum
