PROBLEM DESCRIPTION
Fonts cannot be installed on a TriCaster 40 or 8000 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 the XD8000 or XD40.


SOLUTION AND WORKAROUND
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.
