    Question Font deployment script

    Hi All, does anyone know of a way to deploy fonts via the network/script or something?

    Would make a job a lot easier for me if there is a way to do this.

    Any ideas would be great!

    Just create an MSI - I tend to use Win Installer LE which works fine with the Fonts

    Yep MSIs work fine or a batch file to copy the font from a network share.

    As well as the MSI method you can script it using a startup batch file:


    Batch file

    xcopy \\server\public\dll\lexia___.TTF \%SystemRoot%\fonts\ /y
    Regedit.exe /s FontInstall.reg

    Reg File

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
    "Autograph (TrueType)"="Autograph.ttf"
    "AutographS (TrueType)"="AutographS.ttf"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
    "lexia___ (TrueType)"="lexia___.TTF"

    Depending what font you want installed that is.
