[Fixed] Platform updater finish page has very small fonts

The last page of the updater has a very very little font size. This is not a functional problem - I can click finish and it went away but it isn't looking nice.

OS, Resolution, Zoom

What operating system are you using (version, build, 32 vs 64-bit), what resolution (1920x1080, etc), and what scaling do you have set (200%, 300%, etc)?

Invalid Font

It works without issue here. Did you remove any Windows system fonts like Segoe UI or Tahoma? Could you check your registry to see if you have a key of HKLM\Software\Wine? What this looks like is that the platform is attempting to set a font that doesn't exist. And then it's defaulting to something else, what looks like a pixel font of some sort on your machine.

Environment Variable, Reboot

Since adding Linux/macOS Wine support, the PA.c Platform figures out the font name and size and passes that to the PA.c Updater/App Store via an environment variable. It looks like that might not be making it through. Is there anything on your system that might interfere with environment variables? Can you try rebooting and see if that alleviates the issue?

Same things here

OS : Windows 11 22H2 64 bits

I haven’t seen anything in my environment variables that could interfere

Reboot, Interfere

It wouldn't be any set environment variables that would interfere, it's more if something is interfering with the ability for a process to pass temporary environment variables to another it launches, as is happening here. After a reboot and doing the same thing does it work?

Registry Key?

Do you have the Wine registry mentioned above? Are your standard Windows fonts all installed including the updated Windows 11 Segue UI?

no registry key

The "Wine" registry key is not present.

All Windows standard fonts are correctly installed.

Thanks

Ok, thanks for checking. I have an idea that should work as a fallback in this situation. I should have time to implement it when I get back home.

Fixed in 26.0

This should be fixed in 26.0 with a workaround to detect issues in environment variable passing and default to Tahoma 8 which should be on every Windows system.
