Font missing on installation (but it's there)

Today I downloaded the uPyCraft IDE, first v1.0, then v1.1 (on Win10)

When I run the program I get "Please install SourceCodePro font" - with OK and Cancel. Neither seems to do anything remarkable. Neither option fixes the problem.

I went and got the font from here: https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Source+Code+Pro
I installed the 7 TTF files. The font shows ok in the Windows Control Panel etc.

No change - the IDE still complains when it loads up. When the IDE does come up it seems to display the menu options etc using the SourceCodePro font... as ugly as it is. So why is the program still complaining?

It is not a deal killer but it is annoying and I hate jumping through hoops only to find it is all for nothing (and then of course I had to create yet another online account for this forum to post this silly question - sheesh.)
