With MiKTeX 2.9, I'm gonna use Lucida and/or Jokerman Regular fonts which exist in the font section of my Windows 10:

enter image description here

I've no problem with Georgia or Garamond, but this code

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec,kantlipsum}
\defaultfontfeatures{Ligatures=TeX}

\setromanfont{Lucida}
%\setsansfont{Jokerman Regular}

\begin{document}

\kant[1]

\end{document}

returns an error as follows:

fontspec error: "font-not-found" The font "Lucida" cannot be found. For immediate help type H <return>. \setromanfont{Lucida}

What do I do wrong?

Happy new year!

You are using wrong font names.

In the case of Jokerman Regular, just get rid of that regular. Additionally, Lucida is a family name for a class of fonts, and you need to pinpoint a particular member of this class such as Lucida Calligraphy Italic.

So you may finally end up with the following:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec,kantlipsum}
\defaultfontfeatures{Ligatures=TeX}

% Either of the following
\setmainfont{Lucida Calligraphy Italic}
\setmainfont{Jokerman}

\begin{document}

\kant[1]

\end{document}

Jokerman Regular:

Lucida Calligraphy Italic:

  • How did you find out that Regular must be removed from the font name? – A.Loc Jan 1 '18 at 23:56
  • @A.Loc if you click on the font icon you circled, you should get a window with a font preview which gives the Font Name in the data in the top pane, this doesn't have "Regular" in this case. – David Carlisle Jan 2 '18 at 0:14
