Windows 7: Windows 7 Fonts Not Showing in Font Manager

Windows 7 Fonts Not Showing in Font Manager

Hi All,

I am trying to install 32 barcode fonts (type .ttf) using a batch file. Everything that I have read says that you should just be able to copy the font to C:\windows\fonts and then add the appropriate value to the registry at HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts. My batch file does both of these things, however the fonts still do not show up in the font manager (or applications). They do show up if I browse to the fonts folder using cmd so I know they are where they should be. Is there something that I am missing here? These fonts need to be installed on every computer at my company so manually installing them isn't really an option. Any help here would be great!

In my experience you need to re-start applications in order for newly installed fonts to show up in available fonts.

It may also be worth try installing a couple of fonts one-by-one to see if it's batch-file related.

I know that this post is old, but I thought that I would update it for anyone who stumbles across it with the same problem. I was never able to get the fonts installed using the method that I described above. What I finally ended up doing was writing an AutoIt script that simulated copying and pasting the files directly into the C:\Windows\Fonts folder/font manager. This worked without any problems and I even compiled the script into an .exe so I could use it from any computer.
