Need to deploy a font
need to deploy a font school wide.
What would be the best way of doing this i have read to download windowsinstall LE and create a package... have also read that a startup script could work to??
i have found a script
Would i be able to copy and past that into notepad and save as a .bat or would it have to be a .vbs?
copy \\airlift-fs1\public\IT\font\FREE3OF9.TTF c:\windows\fonts
copy \\airlift-fs1\public\IT\font\FRE3OF9X.TTF c:\windows\fonts
Or how would you do it?
You should be able to deploy using Group Policy preferences or yes the above might work or try Xcopy with a few switches as a startup script.
You also need to do a little bit of registry work as well.
These are the two lines I used to deploy Maiandra GD
I used WPKG, but a batch file should be fine.
copy "\\server\share\directory\MAIAN.TTF" "c:\windows\fonts\MAIAN.TTF"
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts" /v "Maiandra GD (TrueType)" /t REG_SZ /d "MAIAN.TTF"
MSI attached if you need it. Just place the two barcode fonts in the same folder as the MSI and then install as normal. :)
