    I am not sure if this is a PowerUp problem (and this problem have proberly been asked before) but when I install the latest Sputnik beta it fails in installing the fonts. And I have installed XADmaster.

    Is there somwhere I can download the fonts manually?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hmm. Strange.

    I downloaded the corefonts on my pc. Extracted and copied them over to the fonts directory in MOSSYS. Sputnik startes fine but there are no visible text.

    I am doing something wrong?

    Installer works fine independently of the computer you use to run MOS.
    I don't know why it failed for you, but you can download the fonts manually, by loading the install script to a text viewer and copy-paste the URLs of the fonts to a browser. Then, you must decompress them using Voodoo-x for example.

    If you still have problems, run snoopdos to see if there is something missing.

    Hi JohnFante,


    I assume that the ttengine2.database file that will be installed in
    ENVARC: points to the fonts that Sputnik is using.

    The enclosed one looks for SYS:fonts/_ttf/... paths.

    If you installed them in your MOSSYS:fonts/... path you might have to
    correct the paths or move them to your SYS:fonts directory.


    Bye HAK
