Font Installation automation

    We have an installer for our software which copies our custom font into
    c:/windows\fonts\. It seems that Word 2003 (perhaps others) doesn't see
    the font right away. Opening the font file by browsing to the file in
    windows explorer and right click->open, seems to trigger word to see the
    font.

    I guess my question, is there something the install application or an
    install script (in some cases) has to run to register the font?
