Install a font using “runas” under Windows

My Windows account does not have administrator privileges. I used the following recipe to install a font under Windows.

  1. runas /user:Administrator cmd.exe
  2. cp *.ttf c:\windows\fonts
  3. start c:\windows\fonts
  4. When the Fonts folder pops up, select File->Install New Font and browse to the c:\windows\fonts folder.
  5. Pick all the copied fonts, and click OK.
