Install font files when running CAB file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to install some fonts (.ttf files) in the PDA folder Windows/Fonts while the main application is being installed? I mean, is there any way of indicating this into the CAB file created?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    If you want to install font using programmatically then you have to write code for copying @"\Windows\Font\"

    To create the CAB file, follow this link:

    To add the files like font or other :

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Aa446504.deploy_cf2_apps_cab_msi_17(en-us,MSDN.10).gif


    in the above window:

    1) Right click on File System on Target machine

    2) Add special folder --> Select Windows from the sub menu

    3) Add your fonts files to Windows folder.


    Please let me know if it does not work.
