font installation data

How can I find out which application (not which user) installed a given font 
on my PC?

I do NOT want to know if the font is not an original Windows font at all, I 
want to know why and when it was installed.

There is no standard way of recording this data.
You may be able to get the date from the file itself and check the 
uninstall key int he registry for similar dates.

Is there font size limitation on antialiasing?
Hi, I made a program to display a character on LCD. To apply anti-aliasing, I created font with ANTIALIASED_QUALITY flag. [ CFont.CreateFont(... , lfQuality, ...) ] The problem is like this: When I displayed characters that the font size is larger than about 680-pixel, the anti-alising is not applied on displayed character. So I tested my program on the other computer. (My computer is Win2k, the other is WinXP.) At this time, characters that the font size is larger than 330-pixel is displayed with no anti-aliasing. On MSDN, [ ANTIALIASED_QUALITY ] Windows NT 4.0 and later: Font is ant...
