    Install a font over a network

    Locked

    by magistratemike ·

    I need to install a font on over 100 PCs and I don’t want to have to sit at every station. Is there a way to automate the process (copy and paste doesn’t seem to work).

    Thanks for your time and effort,

      I had a simliar problem, basically I created a shared folder (l:/public) and a batch file ( maths.bat) which copied all the files/fonts I want). Then in the Default Domain (GPO) in Active Directory, under Machine Configuration, I call the batch file to run, when the machines are started up. Works every time. I just refresh the batch file as needed!. If you need any help. let me know.

        Trouble deploying fonts

        Hi
        I have done something similar but it isnt working.
        I created a .bat file in the Netlogon folder with read permissions to domain users. The content of the BAT file is – “copy \\mydomain.com\NETLOGON\ITC_QUAY_TTF_PC\*.* %systemroot%\fonts”

        If I run the BAT file as admin it works. When I assign it to a Machine Startup GPO it doesnt seem to do anything. I cant see anything related in the eventviewer and I have tried GPUPDATE /FORCE.

        Have you got any advice?

        Thanks
