Got a need to script the install of some Type 1 fonts on a number of Windows XP/7 boxes and I've found that scripting the install is easy but I some of the installs are updates to existing fonts therefore I want to remove those fonts first so they install cleaning with the updated version, i.e. no "do you want to overwrite" prompts.  I can't seem to find a way to uninstall/remove fonts from the system via Powershell.  Anyone done this before with Type 1 fonts?

Tobias:

Unfortunately that approach doesn't work with Type 1 fonts since they require more than one file to install/uninstall.  The code itself even states that it won't work with them.

Any other ideas?
