Simple copy is not enough.

AFAIK there are two ways with vbs, triggering "Install Font" context 
menu handler on font file or adding font names to registry.

First method:

Have a look at this script, it's working with method InvokeVerb to run 
Install Font, it should work as long as you have Windows in English.



Second one:

We're using second one, with "reg" to import font names along with fonts 
file names to registry key "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows 
(Eg. "OCR-B 10 Pitch BT (TrueType)"="OCRB10N.TTF")
