Hello list,
Here is a minimal example of what I have been trying to do and it
doesn't work. All I need is to replace the bold face of the main font
with SemiBold variant. I get an error message than I can't decipher. I
have tried different things according to fontspec manual, but none
worked for me.

I would appreciate if somebody can tell me what is going wrong in here:

\defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text, Scale=MatchLowercase}
\setmainfont[BoldFont={* SemiBold}]{Arno Pro}
\setsansfont{Hypatia Sans Pro}
% \newfontfamily\arnosemibold[BoldFont={* SemiBold}]{Arno Pro}

I get a lot of error messages for this small file. The first two
errors in the log file are as follows:

./untitled.tex:7: Font \@tempfontb="Arno Pro SemiBold/ICU" at 10.0pt not loadab
le: Metric (TFM) file or installed font not found.

l.7 \setmainfont[BoldFont={* SemiBold}]{Arno Pro}

I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.
[Wizards can fix TFM files using TFtoPL/PLtoTF.]
You might try inserting a different font spec;
e.g., type `I\font<same font id>=<substitute font name>'.

./untitled.tex:7: Arithmetic overflow.
<recently read> \calc at denominator

l.7 \setmainfont[BoldFont={* SemiBold}]{Arno Pro}
