    Can the MPI be used to install font's to the windows font directory?

    Thanks in advance

    Only if you make a internal plugin, and in this plugin you make a procedure when the installation done copy a specified file to windows directory

    Thanks for the reply Dukus, I am not a programmer, so writing a plugin is out of the question for me :( Is there any chance that MPI will be able to install font's in the future? I would like to use MPI to install my foofaraw skin, but would need to install fonts, also I have had a program created that allows the end user to change the background for their skin, I would like to create a shortcut to this exe file in the start menu...

    I can acheive all this using the foofaraw install msi , but it would be much better if all skins used your mpi...


    Thanks
