How Does One Elevate Fontview.exe within Sigil 6.0?

Hello;
I added fontview.exe to open fonts within Sigil, but when I do so I get a message that the file is not a valid font. It is, however, because fontview.exe can open the file normally outside of Sigil.

I'm thinking that Sigil might not elevate fontview to administrator, so how do I do this? If this isn't the problem, how do I get the "call" to work properly. Any other tested suggestions or alternatives would also be much appreciated.

Thanks...

Sigil will not elevate privileges. It will run the command you're asking it as the user Sigil is running as.

Thanks,

I found a freeware solution, Fastfontpreview, at http://www.lanmisoft.com/fastfontpreview.htm

It not only lets me view and copy font info but also calls fontview.exe without a hitch.
