Install Font

Hi,

I have created a font which is unique to me. This is stored in a .TTF file.
I would like to be able to have an application which witten in VB.NET which
when run, prints a Excel workbook or Word document using this font. I do not
want to install the font on to the PC or have the font be availalble for
others to use. I want it to be unique to my application. I am fully OK with
the interop to Word and Excel, but I need to now how to install a temporary
font, use it and then make sure it is not left for others to use.

Thanks
Tim
