Hi, I'm attempting to create an MSI that installs fonts to the C:\Windows\Fonts folder However, whilst it works on my test machine, on other machines (even when logged in as a local admin user), I get the error: "Error writing to file: c:\windows\fonts\myfont.ttf. Verify that you have access to that directory. [ Cancel ] [ Retry ] [ Ignore ] "
I've tried disabling UAC, and the problem still occurs. My hope is to deploy this via user GPO.
Update: I now have this working fine when clicking the .MSI file on other machines. I needed to update the "application" location to [FontsFolder] and move the fonts to the "applications" section of "files and folders".
The problem I now have is that when deploying via GPO on a user level, the MSI doesn't seem to work. I've checked, and the MSI reports as having run without errors in RSOP.MSC , yet it doesn't appear to have done anything, nor does it show up in add/remove programs (which it does when installed manually).
Any ideas how to troubleshoot the GPO deployment of these MSI files in more detail?
Getting further now... GPO at computer level is running and MSI now appears in add/remove programs. However, the fonts are not showing up in the windows fonts folder!! Aghrr!!! What can be going wrong? It works fine when double clicking on the MSI.. I've selected "install with elevated privileges" on the MSI settings..
