The Monier-Williams Sanskrit Dictionary: Fix for Windows Vista
The BBT’s digital edition of the Monier-Williams Sanskrit Dictionary does work under Windows Vista, once you’ve replaced an old font file with a new one.
Without the fix, a few diacritical characters won’t show up. With the fix, all works fine.
Here’s the fix:
- Download this zip archive. (It’s small: 5 KB).
- Extract the file MWD.FON and put it in your Monier-Williams Dictionary folder, replacing the old version of the file.
Thank you to Ramakanta Dasa, who wrote the dictionary program, for providing the fix.
If you don’t already have the dictionary, it’s freeware. You can get the dictionary from the Krishna.com store for $1.95—the charge for shipping and handling.
