Clashing fonts? Opentype on the PC

Our foundry has a family of three fonts generated from Fontlab4 as Opentype. Sadly our PC customers have trouble loading them onto their machines. All three files copy to the fonts folder no problem, but then one does not appear in Photoshop. The fonts work fine on our Macs.

What should we be looking at to resolve this? Could there be some sort of clash between the naming/id of the fonts?

Your thoughts are appreciated,

Keep in mind that a Windows font family consists of regular, italic, bold and bold italic.
You must fit your fonts in this scheme and use the buttons »bold« and »italic« in the FontLab Font Info. You cannot have more than one font with the same setting of these buttons.
