    The tighter security in Windows 7 prevents fonts from accessing the system simply by viewing them. Fonts can contain executable code that could cause damage to your system.

    Download AMP Font Viewer 3.86 http://www.ampsoft.net/utilities/FontViewer.php browse to Not installed fonts folder,pick one and use option Install font temporarily.It works.

    Fair enough however my post was re; you post#6

    Symbolic link or not, the font is 'installed' and written to the windows registry regardless of it's physical location.
    Using a shortcut to a font as a symbolic link is fine, but removing it should still be done by uninstalling it from the font folder.

    You can made a font available without installing it with dp4 font viewer, though I can'r say if it will work with PSP as I don't have it installed on my W7 machine.

    I have just confirmed that dp4 font viewer as mentioned above works with Windows 7 34bit and 64bit AND makes the font temporarily available to PSP (and all other programs)
