How can I delete a font with VB6?

I'm aware of the API calls below, but these don't remove the actual font from the registry or the Fonts folder...
Call RemoveFontResource(Fontname)
Call SendMessage(HWND_BROADCAST, WM_FONTCHANGE, 0, 0)

A small sample would be great!

You can use ShGetSpecialFolderLocation with CSIDL_FONTS to get the directory where the fonts are stores, and just remove the file manualy

The ShGetSpecialFolderLocation with CSIDL_FONTS returns the place where the fonts are stored. Not how to remove any: that is exactly the problem I'm having :
A simple --Kill "C\WINDOWS\FONTS\FONTNAME" -- just doesn't work...
