Font Folder Issues

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?Wi1GYWN0b3I=?=, Apr 3, 2007.

  1. All of a sudden my Font folder is read only, and I am unable to change it. I
    cannot add new fonts or delete existing ones. I am running SP2. Any help
    would be appreciated greatly.

  2. I'm sorry, but you appear to have stumbled in to the wrong newsgroup. This
    is the 64bit newsgroup, where we are focused on issues specific to the
    various 64-bit Windows versions. From your post, I suspect you probably
    wanted an XP specific newsgroup, probably
    microsoft.public.windowsxp.general.

  3. Charlie,

    Keep in mind SP2 was just recently released for Windows Server 2003 and
    XP x64.

  4. I'm acutely aware of it, since I have an SBS server I had to roll it back
    on. ;)

    Font folders aren't x64 specific under any circumstances. And the solution,
    when identified, is almost certainly not going to be 64-bit specific. I'm
    pretty cautious about using that standard message, since I believe in being
    as inclusive as makes reasonable sense.

  5. Charlie,
    Thank you for the feedback, but this is a 64bit problem. If you have
    helpful information that would be great. if not thank you for your time.

  6. Actually, it's not a 64-bit problem, even though it may be happening on a
    64-bit machine. But I'll pass on that part.

    If you can no longer access the font folder, you need to do the same things
    anyone would do to troubleshoot. First, ask yourself what changed in and
    around the time this problem showed up. Second, examine permissions. Third,
    Is this a domain, or a standalone workgroup machine? If it's a domain, ask
    your domain administrator what policies have changed.

  7. I was able to use TweekUI to rebuild the font folder. Thanks for the help.
