  1. I keep getting failed installs with error “the application was not detected after installation completed successfully (0x87d1041c)”.
    Any ideas?

      1. Hi, thank you for your guide. I tried it as you described, but I always get this error: App installation failed Error code: 0x80070000

        On my Devices I can see, that the fonts have been copied to the Appdata folder. But it seems that the installation afterwards fails.

        Do you have any idea why this happens? Your Help would be much appreciated.

        1. Hi Tan,

          Thanks for trying the installation. What script do you use for installation and what paths do you copy the files too?

          1. Hi Niels,

            Thanks for your reply. I am using the script you posted for installation and did not change the paths. The files are copied successfully into this path: C:\ProgramData\InstallFonts

            Thank you for your help 🙂

    1. Hi Ram,

      It is not required. I like to deploy it this way because I then can copy the files to a location which I can later review. Furthermore, you can add more fonts and files to this configuration.

      Thanks,

      Niels
