Importing Font Types in Windows Embedded Standard 2009

Environment

Valid for WES 2009, and not for WES7 or Windows 10 IoT!

Issue

You want to use different fonts (i.e. for barcode printing) on IGEL thin client with Windows Embedded Standard 2009.

Solution
  1. Disable File Based Write Filter in Setup > System
  2. Copy new font type to C:\Windows\Fonts\
  3. Open Windows registry
  4. Add new string in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts\

    name = <font name>

    type = REG_SZ

    value = <font name like in fonts directory>

  5. Enable FBWF
  6. Reboot the thin client

    If more IGEL thin clients need the new font, change one client, create a snapshot and distribute it to the others.
