Hi ,

You just need  add the required fonts files to "C:\Windows\Fonts" via MSI.


Make sure to use the right attribute if you want to retain the fonts on the machine during uninstallation

MSI contains inherent functionality for installing fonts. Have a look at this link for more info on the fonts table:


depending on which IDE you use adding fonts to a package should automatically cause this table to be used
