Error opening desktop walpaper settings window

I am using DisplayFusion Pro v3.1.6 on Windows 7

I've been using Display fusion for quite a while without any problems until a few weeks ago. It generally runs fine all by itself, but when i try to open the wallpaper settings window, I get this error...

Microsoft .NET framework
Unhandled exception has occurred in your application.
Font 'Tahoma' does not support style 'Underline'

After clearing that error, DisplayFusion usually aborts and I have to restart it.

I have deinstalled and reinstalled Displayfusion a number of times. Windows 7 won't let me reinstall .NET V2.0 and disabling .NET then re-enabling it in Windows doesn't help. I've checked the Displayfusion log, but this error is not listed there.

any suggestions?

Thanks, Rick

It sounds like your Tahoma font has somehow been corrupted. Do you have access to another Windows 7 machine so you can copy and replace the font?

I never thought that the font could be corrupt. i went to the Microsoft site and downloaded a new copy.

Problem solved, thanks.

Glad to hear it's fixed. I've added a check to the next version of DisplayFusion so that instead of a hard crash, it will just fall back to a different font. I guess things that aren't supposed to break sometimes do.
