Hi Curtis -

I'm guessing you're on NT with ATM enabled (for PostScript fonts).

If you are on NT, you can convert a PostScript font to TrueType by doing

1. Delete the font from the Windows > Fonts folder.
2. In the Fonts folder, choose File > Install new font.
3. Browse to the font on a remote disk or partition.
4. Click on the font to install it, but select the checkbox that says
"Convert to TrueType".

There are also 3rd party utilities that will do this, I am told.

More info on using PostScript fonts in Flash on NT:


Essentially, it's an issue with ATM that makes Flash crash on NT.
