I am trying to use Batang font for Koreanisch and it doesn't work. If I try a simple font, for example, Calibri it works and the file compiles. But if I use a font like Meiryo,PMingLiU,Batang and just fails. I am running this from the command line and I allow to install packages on the fly:

xelatex.exe -enable-installer test.tex

What should I do in order to add this font, if automatically doesn't work?

Thank you, Adrian

Sam Carter has given a very good link on how to use Unicode fonts at


However this was written prior to the font changes in Windows 10 when many were removed from some locales. So in order for windows 10 users to load those fonts you either need to change the default locale or use the better options as found further down in this link


or add a relevant language pack as described here


these can be loaded on demand (like MiKTeX packages) as described here


  • Thanks. I have solved the problem. I just installed the language package from windows and now works.

A faster workaround for this problem is to install the language package from windows. For example, installing the Korean language will bring Batang font and everything will be ok. Now I can generate pdf with Batang font.
