Windows localizations... - Macromedia Director Basics

Good day. My CD was built on Windows 2000, English with Director 8.5.1. People have been able to use this in Italy, France, Germany and other European (and some Asian) countries. Now someone in Hungary is having a problem reading the text. What on earth can I do to fix this??? I may not get the chance to send the files again (it went out on CD, they need it tomorrow) so anything the user can do on her end?? 1. I'm sending her the fonts used... (Arial) 2.

    Default Windows localizations...

    Good day.

    My CD was built on Windows 2000, English with Director 8.5.1. People have been able to use this in Italy, France, Germany and other European (and some Asian) countries. Now someone in Hungary is having a problem reading the text.

    What on earth can I do to fix this???

    I may not get the chance to send the files again (it went out on CD, they need it tomorrow) so anything the user can do on her end??

    1. I'm sending her the fonts used... (Arial)
    2. If that doesn't work I'm going to try asking her to change regional settings to English US (might this work???)
    3. I'll have to use an embedded font (been avoiding this as the files are huge to begin with and we typically send this electronically throughout the world, never had a problem before)

    Anything else or is this in vain??

    I'm kind of surprised Director doesn't include the option to save text as curves or images...

    If you made it so that the xtras are in their own folder then the user could
    copy the entire thing to a folder on their hard disk and delete the Font xtras.
    The movie will work but with no anti-aliasing.

    It wasn't unfortunately.

    If I had done it that way, would it have kept the text styles?

    I don't know - you'll have to test it - but the user in Turkey was able to use
    the CD we'd made without crashing.

    Any other ideas here?

    My client in Hungary installed the fonts but is still having problems. Each character is displayed as a rectangle.
