Subject: Re: Mathematica 9.0.0.0 for windows crash
With some past versions on Windows, right after installation Mathematica

itself would crash, not Windows, when there were any font issues. The

fix was always to manually delete the Mathematica fonts, then

re-install.

then attempted each of the fixes mentioned in the knowledge base

article. The result is that the Mathematica frontend crashes on startup.

So this is a no-go: I am unable to install and run Mathematica 9,

period.

software on the planet can successfully install their fonts on a Windows

machine, but Wolfram has trouble figuring this out.
