Font file preview is blank but font installed correctly...

In Windows, double-clicking on the font file gives me a blank preview, yet the font works normally.

It started as a True Type outlined font, and the preview worked. I saved it out as a PostScript outline font. I have done this with other fonts with no issue, but for some reason this one has a blank preview.

Edit: I even tried optimizing the outlines and re-saving, and still no preview as a CFF Postscript file. I tried saving it out as a TTF and the preview works. Any ideas on how to get this to work? I prefer using CFF outlines.

If a similar font is already installed, windows might show that font instead of your font. So uninstall all previous versions.

It was already uninstalled from the system. What I'm talking about is opening up the font file and the preview window being blank. The font file currently lives on my desktop and is not installed in the font folder yet.

I've attached what I'm seeing:
