I keep getting this error on a particular XP machine, it only happens on this one machine. 1907 unable to register font "."

I have administrative priveledges.

I don't have any files or components called "."

All the other fonts I install are installing correctly.

There is no non font files in my font table.

Does anyone have any suggestions what could be causing this

Thanks in advance

Managed to fix the error. A bit of a strange one but maybe someone can give me an explaination?

Going through the log one of my font files was causing the problem. The cause the installer Cannot get the font title.

I added a font title through files and folders > the font causing the problem > properties entered the title.

The odd thing is none of the other fonts I have installed and registered have font titles.

Its fixed now! Yey!

Is it a non-TrueType font? This, from MSI.CHM:

[font="microsoft sans serif"]FontTitle
Font name. It is recommended that you leave this column null for TrueType Fonts and TrueType Collections because the installer can register the font after reading the correct font title from the font file. If the font name is entered, it must be identical to font title from the font file. You must specify a title for fonts that do not have embedded names, such as .fon files.

If the FontTitle field is left Null, the Font name is read directly from the font file specified. If the font name recorded into the FontTitle field differs from the internal font name recorded in the font file, the font is registered twice by the RegisterFonts action.

Thus I suspect that, if you opened the font file in Notepad, you'd see a title/font name in it and it is that that needs to go in the FontTitle column.

It is a true font file, but a very old one so maybe that is why the problem was caused.
