I have some fonts that have to be installed with our application which have to be installed in the fonts folder (C:\windows\fonts) and in [ALLUSERSPROFILE]\documents\resources\fonts folder.

I used the component wizard > selected the font file type to install the fonts into the fonts folder.

I used the component wizard > create components for me using best practices.

The fonts install in both folders OK. But there is shortcuts in the fonts folder which point to the fonts in the [ALLUSERSPROFILE]\documents\resources\fonts folder which is causing problems and looks very untidy.

Is there a better way to install fonts in two different locations?

I am using installshield 2008 pro.

Thanks in advance

As far as I'm aware, fonts can only be installed in one location, mainly because their names are recorded in the registry, viz. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts.
