Windows 95 and NT have very different ways of handling fonts. I've never
needed to use Type Manager on NT, since NT can read and convert Type 1
fonts to TrueType. You can keep both versions of the font on your
system, or just use the TrueType version.

Subject: font problems on NT
I just recently moved to an NT machine. Can anyone tell me why a font
package (Adobe Type Basics) I used on my old 95 machine is not working?
The Adobe Type Manager and the fonts seem to install properly, but then
they just don't show up in the Word font list.
