If you want to install a font via VBScript, then the script needs to consist of two functions:

1/ Copy the font files to the c:\windows\fonts\ folder
2/ Register the font with windows, usually directly edited into the system registry.


And if you're using a MSI package, you can just add the font file to your MSI package and the filename to the Font Table and all done.

Hunter,

I have an earlier MSI to upgrade which has an action removing a font(no idea why the previous engineer did that)
I re-include the font in file/registry table, but it doesn't recover, any idea why?
