The problem is the font not list in Fonts folder, or maybe it's hidden, or it not exist in Fonts folder. But when I try to install this font, is popup message box said that the font is already install on my system. So it make no change, even I reboot my machine...
So what else can be more helpful... pls advice!
Thanks a lot!

Maybe we're missing something. How about some more details?

What font is it? What program(s) are you seeing it appear in? Is it a TrueType Font?

Did you run a system wide search for this font? Be sure to check "search hidden files and folders".

OK,
I'll answer all questions in order:
Firstly, the font's name is .vnArial NarrowH (True Type), the file name is VHARIALN.TTF, of course it's true type font. And I use it in MS Word 2000.
Secondly, I'm not remember if I search hidden files and folders but I've searched many times and carefully.
And last, I didn't see it appear in MS Word.
Need some more details?
Thanks for helping!
