As far as I know...all it takes is that you place them in the Windows/Fonts directory...at least for regular fonts that is.....

Max.

Give this a try for the font installation - not sure if it also covers uninstalling of fonts:

There is also: http://www.planet-source-code.com/xq/ASP/txtCodeId.23120/lngWId.1/qx/vb/scripts/ShowCode.htm

I think when you uninstall it mostly has to do with the registry settings (deletion of keys).  I could be wrong - but this code above should get you started in the right direction.

Hope this helps!@
