Virtualization Question

Problem registring font

02/27/2007 3418 views

Has anyone had problems registering fonts with softgrid? I've sequenced an application which (upon installation) registers a font (OSIMBO.FON). With the sequenced app I keep getting the error that the font is'nt correctly installed. When I start explorer and regedit from the sequence I can see the font but the app still complains about it. When I click on the font in explorer, I get the error that it isn't a right font file.

If you are using Terminal Server SoftGrid client, that version does not virtualize fonts even if they are present in package. Only desktop client do fonts virtualization.

Thanks for you responses.

I searched a little further and I saw the application is a 16 bits app which runs with ntvdm. I tried to copy the font from a cmd which runs in the sequence (pre launch) but then the font is in use. In explorer I then see the font as a shortcut (based on the icon i see) and I can view it. The app stil doesn't work.
I don't use the ts client and run it on XP SP2. Installing the font outside the sequence does the job but that's not what I prefer because i then need two things (a sequence and something to install the font).
