RES Automation Manager: Add fonts on Windows Server 2008 R2

Today while working on an unattended installation for a Citrix XenApp 6 on Windows Server 2008 R2 installation the customer asked me to add some fonts to the default installation. After some searching I found a VBS script that could do this, I had to change the script a bit because it gave some errors:

Like always I tested this script by running it manually on a test server. After a succesful run I placed the VBS file in the datastore:


After this I added a command task with this resource ‘linked’ in the command field:


When scheduled on a machine the script ran without problems, only action that’s needed after adding these fonts is to reboot the machine. Because I added this module to my unattended installation of Citrix XenApp this reboot was already build in.
