Please expand on "I got it to work" so that your fellow ITNinjas benefit from the knowledge that you've gained.

Did you need to only drop the files or did you need to add the registry value(s) too?

It would be useful to mark one of the posts as the answer, too, if indeed it contains the answer! :-)

That old chestnut...

If its only one, RDP the machine and do it as an admin. much easier. There is a lot of info floating around there (and here) on using VBS to import a font. Luckily they don't come up often, and they quite tricky. That is why all the links on the internet give step by step options for the GUI.

Good luck

>quite tricky
Really? I've always just dropped the file(s) into %SystemRoot%\Fonts folder. *Very* occasionally, Windows has needed a kick and I've had to set the relevant entry in 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts' but generally speaking, just dropping the file(s) has been enough.
