    How can I install my Adobe Type Fonts?


    I bought many Adobe font packages back in the win 3.1 days. I have a stack of 3.5 " diskettes full of these Adobe Fonts collections? Win 8.1 Pro x64 Control Panel > Fonts applet rejects them all when I try to copy them to the Windows Fonts library.
    How can I install these Adobe Fonts collections into Win 8.1 Pro x64?

    Minimal Solution


    I purchased over 100 Adobe Fonts years ago, but the Adobe instructions worked for about a dozen fonts.

    It sould be nice to have access to all the fonts I already purchased.

    I installed a bunch of fonts earlier by copying and pasting into C:\Windows\Fonts folder Not sure if that will work for you.

    I had some fonts that I had made. I finally found out how to do it. Right click on the font and chose install. Worked perfect.

    don't have a solution sorry , maybe Adobe figures you got you moneys worth over the years, and wants you to buy new ones

    If I remember right we used Adobe Font manager (ATM to install adobe fonts back in the day (had hundreds of Adobe Fonts, albeit not sure it there is a working ATM available for today's modern OSs. You could try this ATM over on Adobe's ATM page. . .Good Luck. . .

    We're sorry, but Adobe has discontinued the sale and development of Adobe® Type Manager® (ATM™) Deluxe software for Macintosh and Windows®.


    from the link above and the lite manager they offer seems to be for win xp
