Installing Fonts with a script

By cgreeff ·
I'm trying to install a font to about 100 computers on two networks at work using a logon script that runs via a GPO in AD.

My bat file looks like this:

If exist c:\windows\fonts\metr53w.ttf goto end

If not exist c:\windows\fonts\metr53w.ttf goto update


Copy \\whkfsr01\logon$\SGAFont\metr53w.ttf c:\windows\fonts

regedit /s \\whkfsr01\logon$\SGAFont\importfonts.reg

start \\whkfsr01\logon$\SGAFont\message.txt

goto end


I know that with the importfonts.reg I'm suppose to register the font in the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts] but I'm not sure which data values to address with which binary codes.

Can someone point me in the right direction??

Fonts Script.

by carlos In reply to Installing Fonts with a s ...

Here is a simple one.

I use this to execute fonts to all my 150 machines with and without AD.

First you need to have a distribution point.
second you need to execute the script from the clients machine. "This is a wild Card
command". It will look automatically to your
fonts location. "This only works for default font location". ""c:\windows\fonts""

copy and past the following to a text.
rename *.txt to *.vbs
Const FONTS = &H14&

Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(FONTS)
objFolder.CopyHere "c:\MS\Fonts\ACaslonPro-Regular.otf"


each font has to have is own objFolder.CopyHere "*.*".

For example:
objFolder.CopyHere "c:\ccsafonts\KvBdIt__.ttf"
objFolder.CopyHere "c:\ccsafonts\KvBdItEp.ttf"

Hope this helps
