    Just wanted to post this so that Google would index it and maybe save
    someone a little time. I just wasted a week on this.

    The following caveat has not been resolved in Install Wizard version 1.3.

    CSCed94476. Uninstalling ACU 6.x prevents changes to Windows font
    settings


    When you uninstall ACU version6.x, the Install Wizard deletes the
    layout.inf file from the Windows\Inf directory (for example,
    C:\WINNT\Inf), which consequently prevents you from changing the size of
    Windows fonts. To work around this issue, copy the layout.inf file from
    another location on your computer (such as the directory containing your
    Windows installation files or service pack installation files), from your
    Windows installation disk, or from another computer running the same
    operating system with files of similar vintage and paste it into your
    Windows\Inf directory

    ---

    What they don't mention is that nuking the layout.inf breaks Windows File
    Protection. WFP will prompt "Please insert your into the CD-ROM drive"
    when a protected file restoration is needed because without the
    layout.inf, it doesn't even know what disc is needed!
