PRB: "AddFontResource failed" message displayed when installing a font

If you receive an "AddFontResource failed" message when installing a font using Inno Setup, try double-clicking the font file in Windows Explorer using the same operating system you're installing on, and see if you get a message like this:

The requested file was not a valid font file.

If you get that message, then the problem is beyond Inno Setup's control.

Windows 2000 seems to be more strict than previous Windows versions about the .ttf files it accepts, and will report some older fonts as being invalid.
