How do I view fonts from another disk?

This is for a font viewer.

We all know the routine to add the printer fonts to a listbox, but these are the fonts from the *system*.
How do I do the same for fonts from another disk, optical, zip or CDRom?
Is there a simple way, or do I use API?

Thanks very much.

I believe, you'll need to use API:

1. Register fonts using AddFontResource() API
2. Then using the standard ways of listing fonts

Hope, this helps,

It is a good idea, but I would like to avoid registering the fonts.
Or can I de-register them after I exit my program? <---

I was thinking of using the CreateScalableFontResource () and read the fontnames from
"FONTRES:", but this only works with TrueTypes. Not with Postscript fonts, or ordinairy
fon files...

Is it possible to show me a sample code on how to register and un-register fonts?
