I tried the answer but the ffpython only works with the batch file, which is very deep in folder structure. I tried added the PATH variable from the batch file, making ffpython accessible at all paths, but ffpython at other paths and import fontforge result in an error with dll files. Rebuilding is hard and I haven't tried that yet since I cant find the modules needed except Cygwin.

Is there any hope? Are you trying to save a font to the Windows font folder? If so, you need to save it somewhere else and then copy it in.
Otherwise, could you please post the exact text of the error message? I was not trying to save to any system folder. I was trying to save to my desktop.
Otherwise, I would suggest trying it on Linux as the Windows build is a bit of a kludge. Start with a set of arguments to convert a. This works fine, as long as I run it on the Azure emulator, or if I log in to the cloud box and run it manually there, but fails if I run it on the cloud box without any desktop session connected. Do you have any idea how I can go about debugging this, or where which newsgroup I might post a question to? Hi Matthew , thanks for your great job. I have it installed in Windows, and it works perfectly.
However, I am looking for pre-built libraries to work on MinGW too. Matthew, sorry for my misleading question. I download that package, following the instructions but with all needed libraries updated to the latest one.
Also, instead of compiling the FontForge source, I use the latest one also. Any suggestions? Hi Mathew, it took me quite a long time to run the compilation. See the pkg-config man page for more details. Looking at your other comment, my patch to fix this error appears to be one of the patches that failed. I have downloaded all packages and src of the exact same versions as shown in the readme.
By ignoring that, I run the build. Hunk 4 succeeded at offset lines. Hunk 5 succeeded at offset lines. Hunk 6 succeeded at offset lines. Hunk 7 succeeded at offset lines. Hunk 8 succeeded at offset lines. Hunk 2 succeeded at offset -2 lines. Hunk 2 succeeded at offset -1 lines. Hunk 3 succeeded at offset -1 lines. Hunk 4 succeeded at offset -1 lines. Also, my patches are no longer up-to-date as three of them failed. I have one question and would be appreciative if you could help me.
I want to edit BDF font 2. After I save modified font the format of the BDF file is different. How can I save BDF font in 2. Matthew, this looks like exactly what I need, and have installed the FontForge Windows Binaries official : on a W7 64 bit machine, and all seems to work, but not for many minutes. I am creating a font from a photograph of numerals on a clockface, cut into small monochrome bitmap imported and started to create a spline around it, but almost immediately I get a Windows error.
The older build from tends to be a bit more stable. Excellent advice; Installed the earlier one as you suggested, and it works without crashing. Thanks so much for the note about the build. I just installed FontForge yesterday and was pulling my hair out from the crashes. The older build does work! I had the same crashing problems with Win7 64b and the issues went away after I switched to the version.
This seems to be common enough that you should consider making a comment near the download links so that when people encounter it they know the solution immediately. I read earlier that your older version works better on Windows? Is there a link to that version? I am running your newest version on Windows 8 and it crashes every two minutes. I would really love to get a hold of that more stable version.
These links are busted and I, too, would like to get a copy of the build for Windows 8. It seems without it, whenever I used FontForge, it crashed on me even on the old version. While the newer version is a bit unstable for me, the older version rarely crashes. Is fontforge for windows built with ï¿½python-extension?
See the build script. Thank you for these builds of FontForge! I am now using your build with Windows 7 Pro, I also had trouble with crashing using the latest version from Sourceforge.
So far no problems with the version you recommended. I also tried the Windows compatibility test mentioned by an an earlier poster with the current FF version, which recommended an XP SP2 mode yet still had no luck preventing crashes. Thanks for your work on keeping this great program available; especially for those of us whose eyes glaze over when we read than something must be built from source.
Every time i try to generate a font it gives me a 0kb file. With OTF fonts i get the 0kb files, and with TTF fonts i get an error window that reopens after being closed the process needs to be killed in task manager. Any Idea why it happens? I tried it on 2 Windows 7 systems, and 2 Windows XP systems ï¿½ every time getting the same results, so it seems that it is not a particular system related problem, but someting in the Fontforge build.
Apparently FontForge release b is required to run on a 64 bit system. Does the installer use that version? As others seem to be encountering similar problems, if the use of rather than b is the root of the problem, could this be resolved?
Anything that runs on bit Windows will run on bit Windows. But I think there is a little bug: I have a dual LCD setup and use 1 as topright and 2 as bottomleft. That makes XY 0 0 and the last dot not visible. After opening the font the font window is displayed on-screen while the Tools, Layers and Char windows are out of range at XY 0 0.
FontForge was designed for Linux, so running it on Windows is a real kludge. Having the same issues as others here. FF crashes after a handful of operations, with no seeming pattern as to which operations might be causing the issue. Wondering if there are any other options, alternate builds, etc.?
Thanks for working on this, anyway. Hopefully the next version will be stable enough. But after having the program installed there is no reaction after clicking the program icon. I need to extract font from pdf file. But now I want to do this process as a batch, because I have number of pdf files.
So instead of opening each and every pdf file manually, is there any other way to do the same in batch process? Is any command line version of FontForge? Both FontForge specific scripting and Python scripting are available. For Python scripting, one needs to use the Python enabled build. I had crashes like everyone else, almost went crazy trying to find a good alternative.
But now I think I found some success, so I would like to share. Extract and run the. I hope it lasts :D. Please how to run FontForge without access to the network?
Also, my builds do not require Cygwin. Thanks for the Windows version of FontForge. Please could you provide another link for your Windows package of GlyphTracer. The Dropbox link is returning a error. I just moved it over to Bitbucket as well. Thank for your hard works to make FontForge to be easy to install on Windows. I used to install FontForge on Linux and it displays Khmer unicode character very well.
I hope you can find any solution. Although, I still appreciate your hard works. My builds are very much out of date at this point, so that might be the problem. The image is 1-bit, with clear space between the glyphs. Have you any suggestions as to how to cure this? I have no idea, sorry. The build is crashed when I try access the drive other than c: 2. It might be a limitation in xming. Foreign characters appear as square blocks and cannot be typed in Metrics Window.
Hi Matthew! Thank you for you work! You need to use configure to set the build to static and disable X Thanks very much for the Windows package. Error signature is AppName: fontforge. The same thing is happening to me as Christopher Staffa. Is there any kind of workaround for this? Now my question: Is it possible that you could compile fontforge with the mssing or even ALL libs? Adding libraries tends to be difficult. Additionally, the build was actually compiled on the openSUSE build service.
Here is another small question for you: I am making progress, but I am a bit disturbed by the french interface My Windows 7 is in french. As my copies of Windows are in English, both are untested. Thanks for the lightning quick help replies!
I have a question concerning usability of Font forge. I believe it has nothing to do with Windowsï¿½. The thing is: if i use the version from , I get the messy interface.
So I installed the instead. However, I encounter a very annoying thing with this version ONLY , and I would love to know if you guys witness the same things: if i want to move a point, no matter what the settings in the preferences are, there is a sort of magnetism going on. If i grab and move it, it will be stuck on its position until my nouse is about 8 units away.
But that makes things impossible to work with: if i want to grab one handle that is less than 8 units away from its point, the point itself will move, making it litterally impossible to adjust that handle!
Here is a video of that annoyance! It has been reported here too. Hi I am trying to run the Fontforge in windows 7 64bits. I was working for 2 days until it crashes and now there is nothing I can do, I tried to reinstall and still nothing.
