I got a new 64 bit computer with Windows 7. But when I copied the fonts I was using on the old computer the PFB fonts do not work any longer.
The old ATMF program does not work on this computer so how do I now install the PFB fonts?
Hopefully you did not try to install the old Adobe Type Manager software. If you did, you may need to totally reload Windows if you cannot restore your system to its state prior to attempting to install that software!
Assuming that you didn't make that fatal mistake, the method for installing Type 1 fonts, each of which consists of a .pfb and a .pfm file is as follows:
(1) Copy the .pfb and the .pfm files to a single directory if they are not already so available.
(2) Select the .pfm files for the fonts you wish to install.
(3) Right-click and select Install which will then proceed to install the fonts onto your system copying both the .pfb and the .pfm files to the C:\Windows\Fonts directory. Do not drag-and-drop these files! Alternatively, if you don't want the font files themselves resident in the C:\Windows\Fonts directory, when you right-click the files, select Install as shortcut. This installs the font but references it from its current location.
This worked for me. Our old computer had pfb and pfm files in different locations. Making a local folder on our new Windows 7 computer to contain all of the files, selecting all the pfm files, right-clicking and selecting install worked for us!
