(1)    Adobe Type Manager (ATM) is not compatible with any version of Windows beyond Windows XP (32-bit, only). Attempting to install ATM on any newer version of Windows may actually disable Window's capability of rendering Type 1 and OpenType CFF fonts, requiring a reinstallation of Windows.

(2)    There is no need to use ATM to install any fonts under Windows.

(3)    The file name ._DIN-bold is indicative of a MacOS font. These fonts cannot be installed on Windows systems.
