ClickFont – One Click Font Install

The process to install fonts on Windows is somewhat lengthy, especially if you have multiple font files to install.

So if you’re having trouble with the mini_installer.exe, just right click the exe, goto Properties. Then goto the Compatibility tab and then choose Windows Vista.
