    I am trying to install a game into a computer running Windows XP. However, when the installer examines the computer for compatibility it says I need to use small fonts (it then stops). When I try to change the font setting there is no option for small fonts, just normal, large and extra large. Is there a way to get Windows XP to use small fonts?

    Are you still having this problem? If so, which game are you trying to install?

    Also, if you open Windows Explorer, and navigate to c:\Windows\Fonts, is there a file in there called:

    Small Fonts (VGA res)
