One gets an exception when one starts this program.  (MSI installer used).  The problem has to do with the font Vera Sans and there is a suggestion for where to download this font from.  www.gnome.org/fonts

This download is however limited to Linux and does not work for Windows. 

The program however sees to work.. 

How to repeat:
Start program on windows when fonts are missing.

Suggested fix:
a) Use another font when windows or ship fonts with installation

Thanks for reporting. The fonts are included in the installer and should be installed automatically. Please check that you windows\fonts directory contains the 4 font files also found in the QB-install-path\fonts directory.

Could you also state which Windows version you are using? On WinNT, Win2k and WinXP this error should not occur.

Operating system is W2K Server SP 4.
There is no VERA fonts in windows/fonts directory
There is no fonts directory in the installpath of the query browser, only doc and xml, and neither of these contain any fonts.
