Hmmm.... Im using the CAb that Chaos posted and it is not doing anything. with the exception of the two readme files regardless what icons I tap i get a message that it is not a valid application. i have mortscript 4.2 installed seperately, but even with it ot installed these arent doing anything.

On a side note, I used active sync to copy the two CPR files from my device to the desktop, and opened them in notepad. changed every mention of Tahoma to the font that I wanted and made sure the font was in my windows/font folder. replaced the CPR files and restarted the system. no changes. this really cant be that freaking hard to do. if I post a zip of my CPR files and the font that I am trying to change it to could one of you guys change it for me so I can see what I am NOT doing inside them? I know its asking a lot, but I am really trying to learn here... :)

Make sure youre using the internal font name not the file name in the CPR. open up your font (ttf) in windows font viewer on your PC. btw OTF fonts do not work and must be converted to TTF

Here, give this a try.

Think the problem might have been that they were marked as read only files. :dontknow:

mine is TTF. lt me see if I can figure out what the other thing is you are trying to say... :) ok, try this. I installed Chaos's cab. now in windows\fonts I have Chaos Times.ttf I copied this to my PC and opened it. the name inside is "Chaos Times". so then in my CPR file I should be able to simply for the CLOCK tab anywhere it says tahoma replace that with Chaos Times and my font shold change on the CLOCK tab... Right? I changed it for every entry of Tahoma under Clock, both condensed and the other one... quite a few different spots. I even went so far as to copy that Chaos Times.ttf to \Windows\ but still no dice.

I know its something stupid, and I appreciate you taking the time to help me out a bit.

when the CPR goes back onto the device should it be marked Read only? when I forst copied them OFF the device they were. after I made my initial changes I had to uncheck read only so I could save them. but before I put them back on the device I made them read only. I also tried once with Chaos's origional cab making them not read only first. but no dice.

Chaos, thank you, that last cab you posted here worked great. Now I am gong to try to rip it apart to see what you did, that I haddent... :)

ok Chaos... One more request, man I feel like I am being a pain in your ***.... could you post the CPR files that you made? I am trying to find out what you did that I diddnt. I used WinRar on the CAB you made me, and I got a Setup.xml and then a number of files that end in 001, 002 003, yadda yadda yadda... I normally would just use HJSplit to re compile those... but I doubt they are movie files... :) Thank you so much for the cab though. it did exactly what I wanted. :)

need to get WinCE Cab :) All I did was open remove the write protection from them and change the Tahoma to Requiem.
