### Install different font series files in Latex to compile with pdftex

I have a problem with compiling my otf "Thesis" font. I have different font families like TheSerif, TheSans and TheMix. Every font family consists of different font series for example bold, italic, regular, caps etc. How is it possible to combine these font series with the autoinst? If I try to run

autoinst TheSerif-5-Regular.otf TheSerif-5-RegularCaps.otf I just get this:

[ERROR] I failed to parse all fonts in a unique way; presumably some fonts have unusual widths, weights or shapes.

I have already managed to install the individual font families but without caps and expert. I can't use caps etc. because I'm not able to combine the font series for example caps with regular. You can see the available files in the figures. If I compile I always get errors like

Font shape LY1/TheSerif-TLF/m/scit' undefined(Font) using LY1/TheSerif-TLF/m/n' instead

because the caps etc. are missing.

\documentclass{scrbook}    \usepackage{blindtext}    \usepackage{TheSerif}	% caps missing    \usepackage{TheSans}	% same here    \usepackage[LY1]{fontenc}							    \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}	    \usepackage{biblatex}    \addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib}					     \begin{document}	    \blinddocument	    \nocite{*}	    \printbibliography    \end{document}
