What happened to my font?

#1
I'm not blaming TCMD but the before/after pics below show that the font I use in TCMD changed when I updated to build 48. A restart gets it back to normal. Does anyone have an idea how this can happen?

This problem may be solved. It was suggested that I change the console's raster font from dosapp.fon to vgaoem.fon (a registry entry). I did that and all looks well. I'll have to wait days, weeks, ... (forever I hope) ... to see if the problem recurs. That change brought my number of raster font choices down to 4. But I still have my favorite. I've been looking at grey on black 8x12 ever since MSDOS and that's not about to change.

I had a problem with fonts at one time, not really similar to yours, but my solution was to add the following lines to my 4start.btm file;
Code:
pushd
cd C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local
if exist FontCache*.dat del /w FontCache*.dat
popd
Clearing the Font Cache solved my font problems, and I have not had any problems since.

There is really no reason to continually clear the Font Cache, only if a problem occurs, but this process takes very little time to complete during the start of a TCC prompt. YMMV.
