    Error while Installing/uninstalling Font!


    Recently i havent been able to install any font in Windows 8 Pro. I get the following error message:

    [fontview.exe]
    Windows font Folder
    The device is not ready

    I can access the fonts folder and see the fonts, but i cant delete or install anything...
    I was able to install fonts like maybe 2 months ago.

    Does anyone have any solution for this?

    Try downloading a TTF to the Desktop & right click it & choose Install from the menu.

    How about Drag & Drop ?

    Copy & paste ?

    I just tried both & they worked.-- (into C:\Windows\Fonts)
