Font quality under Windows 7 – Conman font for NRcontrol

A little tip Windows 7 users:
I just moved my development environment over to a Windows 7 PC. After the initial installation of the Conman font, the font looked quite bad.
By default my Windows 7 has the ClearType option turned on with my 24″ Eizo LCD. I opened the control panel – went into Display-Appearance and then into Cleartype – text adjustments, disabled Cleartype, then I was taken through an wizard dialog with a couple of text displays. Selected the best looking text examples, most of the times this was the pre-selected box, and then the Conman font in the NRcontrol application was looking just as perfect as it did on the old WinXP PC.

Just minor bug fixes and a test of a new storage location.
