I've purchased every version of Windows and Office since year 1....but now, I just got a new computer and Vista and Office 2007 and notice my standard font, Courier Old is not there!!!! This font is the required standard font in many legal communities. Is there somewhere that I can download an authentic MS version of the Courier Old font for Vista and Office? (The Courier New font looks to "weak" in legal briefs when in printed form). If not, I may have to switch over to Corel WordPerfect which still defaults to Couier Old. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Please note Microsoft does not offer the font downloading on website since 2002. We cannot download it from Microsoft.
My understanding is that you want to use a previous version of the “Courier New” font. Am I correct?
Technically, we can just copy the font file (under %windir%\Fonts folder) from the previous system and use it to overwrite the current one (please back up the current font first).
However, I highly suggest that you call 1-800-426-9400 (select option 4), Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. (PST) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist, to confirm whether this is OK for license/legal considerations.
I also performed research on Internet and you may purchase the font on Ascender Corporation. Each regular font is normally sold for $30, with a 4-font typeface set license for 5 users priced at $110.
