    Tried it out, got an error:

    Seems you had installed XNA Game Studio, And the program attempted to load the vanilla DLL.
    I used a modified Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Content.Pipeline.dll.
    Please let the program load the dll in 7z.

    Makes sense. Someone else will have to try it on a computer without XNA installed.

    I'm not sure how to force the program to load the dll in the same folder as it though.

    I'll rewrite the program using reflection for solving this problem if I have time.

    It's not a big deal. I already have XNA installed, so I can just build an xna content project to make a dynamicspritefont. I was just curious to see how much easier this would be.

    I've tried compile a font using v0.5, and it worked; no idea why it became this.
    Now, I changed some code trying to fix the exception you encountered; if you have time, please try version 0.6.

    Confirmed working! I have XNA installed btw; thanks for the tool! :D (can't seem to find out how to do it with visual studio...)

    It can't find the font family even though I got it installed, I even put the font files into the directory but it still crashed, any ideas how to fix this?
