Deploying fonts in Win7?

(imported topic written by deschodt91)

It seems Win7 introduced a new way to deal with fonts. Easy enough to do by hand, but if I want to use bigfix to drop the fonts in the fonts directory (as part of some install), the fonts do get copied or seem to (you cannot see them), but that does not install them properly any longer, like it used to on WinXP. I researched this and tried the accompanying registry entry suggested on several posts, but no dice.

has anyone successfully added fonts to Win 7 via BigFix / Tivoli ? If so can you tell me what you did ? Thanks !
