Issue Details

I am using custom fonts and when I ship my executable/installer to clients, the font changes causing the front panel of the executable to look very messy and unreadable.  Is there a way to include the fonts in the installer?

Solution

  1. Add the font file to the Project Explorer by right-clicking My Computer >> Add >> File... Then navigating to the Windows font folder on your computer and selecting the fonts you want to include. The font file should now appear in the Project Explorer.

  1. Create an Installer for your project by right-clicking Build Specifications >> New >> Installer.  
  2. Navigate to Source Files and you should see the font files listed under My Computer.
  3. Select your font file(s) and then click the Arrow button to move the files to the destination view.
  1. Build the installer by clicking Build.
