I had this problem too today after installing Mathematica Player on a Windows 32-bit machine. Mathematica Player quit with an error message (giving an assertion failure error) immediately after opening. And then upon starting Mathematica 5.2, that quit with winFonts assertion error. After speaking with Wolfram tech support, I did the same thing as you (but rebooting after deleting the fonts from the Windows Fonts folder and before re-installing them from the directory you mention from Mathematica Player. However, this is an error I had experienced (on a different Windows machine) several Mathematica versions ago that would occur whenever I installed a new version (this was prior to 5.2, which avoided the error). I'm pretty sure my experience then was due to my using Adobe Type Manager (Deluxe, version 4.2) on that machine. And I think the conflict was due to a problem with the length of the Mathematica font names -- some being longer than the maximum that ATM can regard as distinct fonts. Since I am also using ATM on the machine where I had the font issue with Mathematica Player today, I assumed the difficulty there also had root cause ATM. From what you say, maybe not. (Or do you, too, use ATM?) Drago Ganic wrote: > [See the previous posts on this topic by John Fultz - moderator] > > > Hi, > I had the same problem on an Windows XP 32 bit verson.
