<p>It sounds like the font file is not in the right directory. Remember, on Windows the code runs in Debug or Release directories. You can even set the working directory, too (see Step 7 of <a href="http://dragonfly.wpi.edu/engine/setup-vs-2015.html
<p>You might try to simplify the problem. Make a separate program that does less - see if Listing 4.68 works as a stand alone (you can download all the Listings from the book web page (<a href="http://dragonfly.wpi.edu/book/listings.zip
">zip</a>), so you don't have to type them in). This will help you narrow down the font loading problem (putting it in the right directory, etc). Once you get that working, it should help you build upward to your engine.
