RUSLAN CDROMS WITH WINDOWS VISTA AND W7 32 bit systems
It has been reported that the Ruslan CDRoms work well with 32-bit Windows Vista and Windows 7, once the necessary fonts have been installed. With other Windows versions these fonts are installed automatically during the installation of the Ruslan CDRoms. For 32-bit Windows Vista you may have to install them yourself. There are four font files. Please save them to your PC one at a time, then right click on each font file in turn, and select "install".
On stand-alone Vista and XP machines running under 'User Control' the user needs Administrator permissions to install these fonts.
