in order to help users installing a custom font permanently, I thought of "launching" such font (myFont.ttc), so that the only thing users have to do is to click the Install button of the Install dialog.
This works on the Mac, but it does not work on Windows, in the sense that the Install dialog does not pop up. Yet that font once double-clicked opens up the Install dialog.
Although my font is located in SpecialFolder.ApplicationData, the issue can be seen running this simple code targeting a font:
dim d as new OpenDialog
dim f as FolderItem
f = d.ShowModalWithin(self)
if f <> nil then//a font file is selected/double-clicked
msgbox "font selected"
f.Launch//nothing happens on Windows
Suggestions appreciated. Thank you.
