You can not just copy and paste fonts. You have to install them.
If the install is gone the see this thread.

See post #4

Also you can use this way to use a font without installing but it is best to install if you want to keep using a the same font.

GOOD Way use other fonts without installing them

A trick I ran across you all might be interested in.

Every font you install sucks up physical memory. Unless you have physical RAM to spare, I wouldn't suggest loading too much more than your commonly used fonts. So what do you do with the fonts you want to keep but not install? Put them in ANOTHER directory ("fontsOther" so you can find it beside the Fonts folder). When you want to use a particular font in a document/graphic, go to your "Other Fonts" folder, double-click on the font you want to use (and KEEP THE FONT OPEN), and launch the application in which you wish to use that font. The font should show up in your regular list as if it were installed the "normal" way. When you're done, you can close the font preview window and Windows is none-the-wiser.
This also fixes the problem of too many fonts. All fonts are stored in the Registry, and the Registry has a limit of 64k for each key...meaning 800 - 1000 fonts are all that can be stored without a shareware font manager program.
