We are trying to install Type1 fonts, but unfortunately fonts are not getting activated.

1. If I copy font manually to C:\Windows\Fonts then it works.

2. If I copy font through command to C:\Windows\Fonts then it shows that file copied, but does not work.

3. I put fonts in to MSI and with font registries, still did not work.

nothing left now, I am not sure, how will I resolve this issue. Can Anyone help me?

Can you try the below VBScript..


Const FONTS = &H14&

Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(FONTS)
objFolder.CopyHere "<SourceFolder>\Font.extension"

If you want to put it through MSI, then you need to add it in the Font table. I have used this before and it installs the fonts fine.
