created Photoshop CS4 crash on win7 x64on 04-15-2011 01:51 PM
So I installed a bunch of PS patterns yesterday and was fooling around. No problems there. Today I installed my old [and some new] collection of fonts, around 989 in all. I tried to use the text tool in PS CS4 and the program wants to close itself.
I get this error

Yeah, it's definitely a good idea to not have that many fonts installed at once. "Exception Code: c0000005" is a memory error. Try using AMP Font Viewer -- among other things, it lets you browse uninstalled fonts and install/uninstall them on demand when you want to use them (plus it's free). Also, your fonts should be in C:\Windows\Fonts\.
I had a similar issue with CS5 on Win7 64.
At first I also assumed it was the pack of 1500 fonts I installed, but the NVidia DDS plugin turned out to be the culprit in my case.
So if you don't get anywhere with your fonts and you installed any plugins recently those might be worth a look as well.
