Specific fonts required to run Illustrator and Dreamweaver

Beware: if you don't have all four styles of Verdana (regular, bold, italic, and bold italic) installed, Illustrator CC will crash. Many users basically ignore Verdana. Installing Microsoft Office, and perhaps other apps, may install new versions of Verdana and Tahoma, which could screw things up and cause Illustrator to crash.

More information about this can be found on the Illustrator forum.

To run Dreamweaver CC, you must have Verdana and Tahoma installed. But at least Dreamweaver notifies you of the problem.

Thanks for the info. I updated to the most recent version of Illustrator CC and had that error. Note that I found and added Verdana Bold, Italic and Regular and could not open Illustrator. I then found Bold Italic after reading this and once it was installed, the program opened. Apparently it needs all 4 versions. I also added Tahoma based on another article so that may also help anyone having similar problems.
