Description Elie Roux 2015-06-02 09:32:59 UTC
Some fonts are available under Windows without being in the C:\\Windows\Fonts directory. They are listed in the registry key 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

See http://tug.org/pipermail/luatex/2015-May/005212.html for a few links.

I think fontconfig should be able to find them, as they are available in other Windows applications.

See https://github.com/phst/lltxplatform/blob/master/src/fonts_windows.c for an example of code listing these fonts in C.
