OpenType Fonts with .NET and Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm writing a desktop app using VB.NET (FX 4) and I need to get access to the installed fonts. I use System.Drawing.Text.InstalledFontCollection to get a list of fonts. When I run the app on Windows 8 I get all installed fonts returned, including OpenType, but when I run it on Windows 7 the InstalledFontCollection only contains TrueType fonts. Is there any way to get a list of all installed font names via .Net on Windows 7? I only really need the font names.

    Thanks in advance.
