    While installing a chess game (chesspartner 5.3) installation hangs when
    deal with C:/WINDOWS\Fonts\std.tff
    Have you any hints? I even tryed to delete std.ff from C:/WINDOWS\Fonts and
    repeat the installation but with no result.
    For sure I have installed it already and correctly some years ago and in the
    same system. Probably in the meanwhile I have done only few windows upgrade.
    Thanks

    Windows XP Pro SP3

    A Google search netted this suggested fix:

    http://mx2.lokasoft.com/uk/frequently_asked_questions.htm

    "The installation hangs halfway while installing Std.ttf. This is on
    Windows 2000 and also on XP, what's up?
    There appears to be a problem with the installer. Workaround is to
    reboot, then delete the _Traveler_Standard_font_ using the font applet
    from the control panel, then reboot and reinstall."

    Is WinXP SP3 installed and is the computer fully patched at Windows Update?

    Ty all, I solved looking at the game FAQ as you suggest me.
    I tried deleting std.tff and reinstall the game but not played, reboot was
    needed as written in the FAQ
