Please help me out, I am getting an error whenever I open displayfusion saying:
An error has occurred while updating the preview.
Font 'Arial' does not support style 'Regular'.

Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Intel Q6600 2.4 GHz
NVidia GeForce 8800GT
running dual monitors

I don't know what's wrong, and I just noticed that a lot of text on the internet is in bold now for no reason. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem?

It sounds like your Arial font has either been replaced or corrupted. If you can copy the "C:\Windows\Fonts\Arial.ttf" file from a different Vista installation it should fix this issue for you.

I have similar problem with version 3.0 and no solution from forum didn't work for me.

When I click on Desktop Wallpaper I get error [color=red]Font 'Tahoma' does not support style 'Underline'[/color].
When I click on Settings or About I get error [color=red]Font 'Arial' does not support style 'Underline'[/color].

I tried to change font files, I also tried revert to version 2.2.1, but it doesn't work either.

I have Windows Vista Business 32-bit and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed. I'm using free version of DisplaFusion only, but thinking about Pro, version 3.0 looks great.

Detailed log ("Tahoma error" only) is in attachment.

Thank you for any working solution :-)

I was playing with fonts for a while and I think I have (final?) solution.

Go to you Windows\Fonts directory and find troubleshooting font files - Arial.ttf and Tahoma.ttf in my case. Copy them to another directory. Right-click on copied file and from pop-up menu select Install. Repeat it with all copied font files. Restart DisplayFusion.
I don't know what was wrong, if someone knows, let me know. Maybe some application screwed it up...

This solution works for me now, I hope it will work after restart too :-)

That's a great tip, I never would have thought that just re-installing the fonts would fix the issue. Thanks for the follow-up.

I am having the same problem. The worst part is I have purchased pro, and when I right click the tray icon to enter my serial code I get a window titled "Microsoft.NET framework" and it says "unhandled exception has occurred in your application. if you click continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. if you click quit, the application will close immediately. font arial does not support style underline"

if i click continue the window just dissapears and nothing happens the window just goes away. when i click quit the program terminates.

when i double click the tray icon i get a display fusion window that says "an error has occurred while updating the preview. font arial does not support style 'regular'"

i have to click the "ok" button about four times till it goes away.

i reinstalled all the various arial fonts i had in my windows/font directory, same result. i even downloaded them from the net, and alas, the same result.

my guess is maybe a windows update has something to do with it.

This long-standing issue has finally been completely fixed in version 3.0.3. I'll be releasing this new version in 2-4 weeks. Thanks!
