Font Installation Script

I had a bunch of fonts that need to be installed during the build of  the golden image. I wrote this script to install them as a task sequence, but also to be able to deploy the fonts easily through SCCM. This script will install all fonts of the specified font type from the specified directory location. All of the fonts you want installed are to be placed in the specified directory location. The script will  then read all files in that location and filter out for the specified font type. It will then install each font individually and output the status on whether it installed or not.

I did write an older font installation script back in 2012 in vbscript located in this blog posting.

You can download the script from here.
