Font installation at runtim


I have a application where i am using a font which is usually not
available in windows\fonts. I need to install this font on the clients
machine where my application is running.

I have put the font in my installer so that it gets installed in the
fonts directory on installation. But the use can always go an delete
it. I need a way by which, if the font is not found on the system, my
program will install the font, and the UI of my application appears
nice at all times.

Any directions on how to do it?
