I have around 100 fonts to install on about 1200 PC's; Is there an easy way to accomplish this?  It would be great if I could run something as easy as InstallFont.exe C:\Fonts\*.*  :o)

We use ZENworks 4.01, on Windows 2000 Clients

Cheers

Hmm, just put your fonts in a share folders, and

copy X:\fonts\*.* c:\windows\fonts

Should work out fine..

don't forget your /Y after copy, to supress the overwrite confirmation message.

I am soooo crap, I tried your suggestion orginally but it wouldn't work.  I was trying to install them straight off a Windows 2000 CD without expanding them first!! oh so crap.

Cheers Yan!
