True-Type Fonts

P: n/a
I'm having considerable difficulty getting a LED/LCD style font to work in
VB.Net (on a Button).

The font that I want to use (a Corel-sourced one) will work in VB6, but not
in VB.Net. It says that it is not a True-Type font, when clearly it is such.

I've downloaded several other LED/LCD fonts and none of these work either
(although they do in VB6).
Any ideas?

Font support is extremely poor in dotnet.

This free led font works
http://www.abstractfonts.com/fonts/download.is?id=8187
as do several others from the same site (not all of them though).
