OK, sorry. Did all of that. It installed but now when I run it, a
dialogue says "The Xara X font is not installed". It tells where to
find it on the CD, but it's already in the windows font dir on the fake
drive. So I copied it over anyway, changed permissions to match the
other fonts, and it still gives the same thing. Stuck again.
Any clues? Thanks.
