    Hamsaeed,
    I'm wondering if your new user has any user rights limitations. Usually I try to install fonts in the user I'm logged in as. If that doesn't help I'd try a google/search engine search on installing fonts. Hope that helps.

    I believe, when you install a new FONT, it installs ONLY into the user you're logged in under.

    It's hard for me to test, because I'm the ONLY user on this PC.

    Good Luck!

    They should be available to "Everyone", unless the OP changed permissions on that folder and files to their profile name. They will be where they are.
