Remarks

Windows Forms applications support TrueType fonts and have limited support for OpenType fonts. If you try to use a font that is not supported, such as an unsupported OpenType font or a Bitmap font, an exception will occur. The AddFontFile is not supported on operating systems before Windows 2000. When using a private font on operating systems before Windows 2000, the default font, typically Microsoft Sans Serif, will be substituted.
