I think some Adobe apps, like Illustrator, use their own font list and
sometimes that list needs exorcising.

I recommend installing your fonts to the default Windows location (the
fonts directory) using the control panel.

I'd like to add a cautionary note about XP, Adobe Acro Pro and CS3, and
installing fonts. We had to install an odd font to print some external
documents. The installation went fine, and the Word file used the font
fine. But for some reason, it wasn't being picked up by Adobe. I forget
how I resolved it, I think I had to make sure the font was installed in
a particular directory. So you might install the font in a common
directory, if there is one.
