My apologies, Kimber,
upon re-reading yr msg, I see you DO mention you do NOT have the Install New
Font option
on yr Fonts folder. This often happens.... sooo, whatcha gotta do is this:

Change the Fonts folder's attributes, in a seemingly nonsensical exercise,
but it works.

This article on MS site best recaps how to do it; so go to it:

I've had this happen [& know of it happening] many times over the years.
It's a Feature, not a BUG! [you'd think they'd've fixed this by now...]

ttfn,
Al
