    Startup script that contains:

    Code:
    Copy \\someserver\someshare\somewhere\font.fon %WINDIR%\fonts\font.fon

    It does and the only way I found to do it was to package it as an msi.

    Either way its a lot of hassel to install one font.

    My bad, here's a revised batch file (copying and pasting some of the bits from sysmans script).

    Code:
    xcopy \\someserver\someshare\somewhere\font.ttf %WINDIR%\fonts\font.fon /C /I /S /E /H /Y /Q
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts" /v "Some Font (TrueType)" /t REG_SZ /d "font.ttf"
