Because you do not play by the rules. Ever gave it any consideration why copy is spelled differently from install?
So you know better. You don't give about how things should be done. You know better. You do things your way. According to you 1 + 1 = 9703526823097. Well if you want that, OK. But don't expect things to work.
So go to the nearby supermarket, buy some ears, plug'm in and start listening.

Very dangerous though. Y might learn something. And you wouldn't want that to happen, would you?

thank you, mr. genius....here's what the site instructions say for XP

"Windows XP: Put the font files into C:\Windows\Fonts"

it doesn't say "install" or "copy"...it says "put"

XP is pre 2000. Try to understand your OS.

You have to Paste the .ttf into C:\Windows\Fonts to install it.

Dunno, started with Basic and CPM (DOS' mommy if you remember) went through DOS and all Windows versions and have always been able to find the OS instructions/help pages. Maybe I am unique

for anyone who cares, the CORRECT instructions for XP are open up FONTS in the Control Panel and use the "install new font" from the "file" options in the fonts window

Bingo! That is a proper install
