The TriCaster 8000 revision 0 and TriCaster 40 revisions 5a, b, and c, cannot install fonts as we normally would with the right-click menu. However, there is a solution that can be used to quickly get a desired font installed on a Windows Embedded system such as the TriCaster 8000 or TriCaster 40.


Using "ITC Bauhaus LT Light.ttf" as the example:

1. Copy "ITC Bauhaus LT Light.ttf" to the "C:\Windows\Fonts\" folder.
2. Open a command prompt. (you may need to have them open a command prompt as Administrator if there are security errors)
3. Execute the following:

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts" /v "FONT_NAME (TrueType)" /t REG_SZ /d "FONT_NAME" /f

..so using the above font as an example, and replacing FONT_NAME with the actual font filename, it would look like this:

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts" /v "ITC Bauhaus LT Light.ttf (TrueType)" /t REG_SZ /d "ITC Bauhaus LT Light.ttf" /f

This installs the font. You will need to restart any software that will use this font after it’s installed and may need to reboot the system itself to make the font available to certain applications.
