Managing the Font folder in Vista with Suitcase

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Synapse Syndrome, Mar 8, 2007.

  1. The Vista font folder does not seem to allow you to easily display columns
    like Date Modified or Attributes. This making it hard for me to know which
    fonts have just been added by installing some program. I want to remove
    those fonts and put them in its own folder set in Extensis Suitcase. I have
    far too many fonts to let them all be in the Fonts folder.

    But the big problem is that I cannot set NTFS deny permissions on the Fonts
    folder anymore. What are people who are keeping their work machines clean
    and tidy do when it comes to fonts??

    You can use Xcacls.vbs to view and change permissions. With my Business
    machines I will reset all permissions to those I used for XP.;EN-US;825751

    you will have to modify xcacls.vbs to support vista


    Select Case OSVer
    Case "5.0", "5.1", "5.2"
    IsOSSupported = True


    Select Case OSVer
    Case "5.0", "5.1", "5.2", "6.0"
    IsOSSupported = True

    type to view permissions

    cscript C:\myfolder\xcacls.vbs C:\Windows\Fonts

    Haven't tested with Vista Business because I am not running it in my domain
    yet until I get 25 copies to do KMS licensing.

    Works great with XP and I will test setting permissions with home premium
    when I get a chance.

  3. Thanks Lara. I got it running okay and have gone as far as it listing
    permissions, but how to change them using this script?

    edit: actually, I have found this page:;EN-US;825751

    I'll have to go through it and work it out.
