Windows 10: Invalid Font - Windows 10

    Invalid Font - Windows 10

    Hi all,

    I have noticed a few other threads regarding this topic but have not found a solution.
    No matter where the fonts are from and what format they are in; they simply will not install.

    For individual fonts I receive this error:

    When installing multiple fonts at once, I receive this error:

    I have tried the firewall trick (turning win firewall off and then back on) to no avail, my windows firewall is currently active and has been since I upgraded.

    I have tried safe mode as well as super admin.

    I am at my wits end with this bug and am about to abort win10 all together due to needing to constantly cycle fonts for my job.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    I just found this link Download the font in compressed mode (ZIP). Then extract the files to a folder. Select all TTF files from the folder and copy. Then browse to Windows\Fonts folder and paste. They will install without problem. I just installed them in my system, no error.

    What Language Font is it ?

    When adding a Font - not only do you need the Font itself, But the font also needs to be added to the system registry

    I believe this is the Font Pack you are looking for - in windows 10

    Dism /Online /Add-Capability /CapabilityName:Language.Fonts.Deva~~~und-DEVA~

    Unfortunately, it's with all fonts. I have even removed installed fonts and tried to re-install them and get the same error.

    I added the command given into Powershell, it installed, but alas; it didn't fix the issue.

    Thanks for your time.

    Then something is wrong with your Windows system files. Press Win+R to open a Run dialog and execute this code:

    sfc /scannow

    This will scan all system files for errors and replace them (it may ask for Windows 10 DVD to take the files).

    "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations"

    Thanks for your time and advice ladies and gents.

    I'm in the middle of a crunch right now so I have little time to do a fresh install.

    I'll go back to 8.1 for a while.

    All the best.

    When you decide to upgrade to Windows 10 again, take the time to read my guide to avoid incompatibilities again.
