I don't have the setup to build emacs on Windows. So I tried applying your patch just to <emacs extracted dir>/share/emacs/25.0.93/lisp/faces.el, recompiling faces.elc and restarting emacs. But the variable-pitch is still "Sans Serif" family instead of being set to Arial. 

On my windows, C-h v system-type gives windows-nt. So I replaced w32 with windows-nt, recompiled faces.elc, restarted emacs, and still nothing happened.

I am not sure I any of my previous emails were received, but FWIW, I cannot figure out if edits to that faces.el are being effective on Windows, or if that patch is working for me.

Could people who are affected please try this kludgey workaround, and
see if it gives good results?  Thanks.

(Of course, if someone has got a better idea, please speak up.)
