Automation of Font Installation Windows and XenApp

We Needed a process to automate the installation of non standard fonts for our XenApp Servers.

Whilst there are probably better ways to do this – here is our basic method to automate the installation of Fonts for Windows

  • Copy the specific fonts to the server locally > C:windowsfonts

Copy /Y C:masterFonts*.ttf C:windowsFonts
Copy /Y C:masterFonts*.fon C:windowsFonts
Copy /Y C:masterFonts*.otf C:windowsFonts

  • Run a regedit to register the font

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionFonts]
“Copperplate Gothic Thirty-One BC (TrueType)”=”cp31c___.ttf”
“MF Full Screen Font VGA.640×480.CP437.v1″=”Mfvga01.fon”
