Fonts Not Recognized

Hello, I'm a first time poster.  I'm running windows 8.1 (and XP SP3 for testing purposes).  I just ran across a problem packaging a program (in 8.1).  It took me a long time, but I managed to figure out that the program is not recognizing the fonts it comes packaged with.  It runs properly on my computer when it is installed normally, but when I try to run a cameyo packaged version on a computer it will not run unless I manually add the fonts into the C:\Windows\Fonts folder.  I suppose if I really had to I could just add the fonts to every computer I would use the application on, but that semi-defeats the point of not having an installer.  I am hoping someone can help me.  I believe the program is originally for windows XP.  I just now checked the one I compiled on a windows 8.1 VM and it has the same problem in both windows 8.1 and XP SP3.  After installing the fonts manually, both run properly.   I am hoping someone has some sort of idea, because I am just about out and my best friend Google didn't seem to know either.  Also on a side note, I don't think it matters, but the problem I was running to when the fonts aren't installed is a runtime error 380 (invalid property value).
