Downloaded fonts not working

I’ve never had trouble downloading and using either purchased or free fonts … until recently. I use “High Logic Main Type” to view my fonts so I can easily copy and paste additional characters. I think I have properly downloaded, unzip/extract, install. The font name appears in Main Type but not in other programs (i.e., Word, Silhouette).
In Main Type, however, you can see the dots on the left side (green is good: A Little Sunshine; grey ZERO characters, but they do appear on the right: Beauty; and red the characters are ZERO and they do not appear on the right: Autumn in November).

Any assistance/suggestions will be greatly appreciated, thanks!
