Can't access AutoCAD fonts in TC 16 Deluxe

TC16 Deluxe placed some AutoCAD fonts in TCW16>Program>Fonts>*.shx, but I can't access them.  Windows XP Professional doesn't recognize them (*.shx) as fonts.  I tried CONTROL PANEL>FONTS>ADD NEW FONT in Windows but it still will not recognize them.  Since TC put then there, I assume there is some way to make it work.

I'm not sure what you're stating here. Did you place some SHX fonts that you got from another source into the Fonts folder and they don't show up in the font list? Or you don't see any SHX fonts listed? SHX fonts will show up in the Font list with ".shx" at the end. Fonts from another source will show up in the list after TurboCAD has been restarted. Whether those new fonts will work is questionable; probably not.
