As per the title one of our development pc's has suddenly lost Arial font in VFP!

It is still available in other applications i.e. Word and still listed in the Windows fonts directory but from VFP Form Designer if the user clicks on say a label and goes to the font property it states Arial but when opening the font selector Arial is missing. As soon as they then click off the label the font immediately changes as VFP clearly is unable to resolve the label correctly in Arial. Arial Narrow etc are still listed.

I have read through another thread on this subject but unfortunately no solution was ever posted. (see https://www.foxite.com/archives/vfp-arial-font-missing-0000345836.htm)

Has anybody else had this problem and managed to fix it?

The PC is running Windows 7 64bit (as are the other 2 development pc's which do not have this problem!) and VFP9 SP2.

The problem just started this morning. No updates, software or hardware changes have been made for weeks.

Any help would be appreciated :-)

Many thanks,
