NetMeeting and SIL Ulysses fonts on LinguaLinks

LinguaLinksĀ 4.0 Workshops

Problem: This error message occurs when trying to start Netmeeting: "conf has caused an error in GDI.exe. Conf will now close."

Solution: You need to remove SILUX.FON from your windows/fonts or winnt/fonts folder in order to use NetMeeting.

The SIL Ulysses Font is used for displaying Greek characters in the Koine Greek dictionary that is included with LinguaLinks. If the font is not present, the non-Greek portion of LinguaLinks will work, but the Greek lexicon may look strange. If you wish to use both the Greek dictionary and NetMeeting, you need to temporarily remove SILUX.FON from the fonts directory while using NetMeeting.
