Add fonts to Win CE 6

Maybe a simple question: I need to add fonts to Win CE 6.
I copied to Windows\Fonts folder, but how can I make them persistent after poweroff/poweron?

You cannot. Instead of copying fonts to windows folder, try to copy it to some flash partition.

On colibri T30, there is user writeable partition named Flashdisk.

Put your fonts to path: Flashdisk\system\fonts and write this path to the registry:

(Depending on wanted fonts, I’m using chinesse, japanesse and korean)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\FontLink\SystemLink]
“Symbol”="\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\msgothic.ttc,‚c‚e“Á‘¾ƒSƒVƒbƒN‘Ì;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\gulim.ttc,Gulim;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\simsun.ttc,NSimSun;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\mingliu.ttc,PMingLiU"

“Courier New”="\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\msgothic.ttc,MS UI Gothic;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\gulim.ttc,Gulim;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\simsun.ttc,NSimSun;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\mingliu.ttc,PMingLiU"
“Tahoma”="\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\msgothic.ttc,MS UI Gothic;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\gulim.ttc,Gulim;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\simsun.ttc,NSimSun;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\mingliu.ttc,PMingLiU"

“Times New Roman”="\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\msgothic.ttc,MS UI Gothic;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\gulim.ttc,Gulim;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\simsun.ttc,NSimSun;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\mingliu.ttc,PMingLiU"

“Arial”="\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\msgothic.ttc,MS UI Gothic;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\gulim.ttc,Gulim;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\simsun.ttc,NSimSun;\FlashDisk\System\Fonts\mingliu.ttc,PMingLiU"

There is already good post how to do that in simplier way:

Thank you very much. I did a quick search, but I missed that post in the KB.

Do you know how to add the fonts to a custom CE 6 build (in case I’ll decide to build my own image)?

If you have Platform Builder installed, you can easily add your files, like fonts etc via bib file in the OS project solution. Bruce Eitman´s (Wince specialist) blog is the right place for you. Take a look at this article:
