Alternatively, you can copy the font files into %USERPROFILE%/.fonts
(BTW I had to use a console to create the .fonts directory since explorer choked on the dot notation)

I figured it out!

The reason fonts are now installed in
C:\Users\JeffHaskin\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Fonts
...instead of
C:\Windows\Fonts
...Is that fonts are now assumed to be user specific. If you right-click on any font you've downloaded and select "Install for all users," the font will appear in C:\Windows\Fonts. You can then close and re-open Inkscape and the font will be there!
