You can also try a REXX script that can add .ttf-files
This script can extract and add them from .zip-files and WarpIn Packages as well

That one will require a reboot to make the font available, though.

Maybe I should add a function to RXUTILEX.DLL for registering fonts without a reboot... well, something for the wish list, perhaps. :)

I wouldn't mind if RXUTILEX.DLL would contain a function to register one or more fonts.
By the way, the script is a variation to the one Alex Taylor provide on his site.

Huh? I don't provide any script like that on my site...

I do provide an executable, which works in an entirely different way (and does not require a reboot).

Ehm... Think I found the code with a prevoid version of freetype/2 then
