How to install/extract a font from a .otf file

I've extracted a .otf font from my Kobo Touch. I'd like to install it on Windows, but Windows can't handle it and neither can any of the font editing programmes I've downloaded. I believe that the file contains multibyte characters. I have tried right clicking and choosing install. I've tried font forge, and several other font related applications. I just get varying error messages saying that it's not a valid font file, despite it working on the Kobo. If it's relevant, the font is Gothic MB101. I'm running Windows 7 - what do I need to do to install this font?

I want a free flashcard program that runs on XP, has a character map, and lets me change titles.

Any recommendations for flashcard program? I'm looking for something free that runs on XP. The kicker: I need to be able to change the font on the cards and have access to a character map so I can use it for classical Greek. Everything I've found so far is crap or for OS X.

Blackletter typeface in Windows?

Is there a blackletter typeface in default Windows installations? – or at least a fairly common one? I've got an idea for a website with blackletter drop caps and the occasional heading. I'd rather not resort to images since it's otherwise all C.S.S.
