What is the best method to install MICR Fonts to any PC or Device

What is the best automated method for a Web-App which has the MICR Fonts integrated in it to install the MICR Fonts to any PC (Computer / Device) running the Web-App for the 1st time?

We have downloaded & installed your MICR Fonts DEMO developer tools. Additionally we have integrated your tools into our Web-App and it seems to be functioning on the developer machine. Yet when connecting from any other machine as a user, our Web-App does not work correctly in that the fonts do not appear to be MICR fonts.

In speaking to your sales we were told that the MICR Fonts need to be installed on each machine yet he was not able to tell us how we can automate this process as we do not wish to make it where the user has to do this step manually.

Operating System: WIN OS any version

Application: MS .Net, C#, and in Crystal Reports

With the purchase of a Developer, you could use Embedded OpenType (EOT) on the website. OpenType fonts allow site designers to integrate barcode, MICR and OCR fonts into webpages without the need to install the fonts on the client PC. You would have to have some control over what web browser the client uses; I believe this is only supported in IE 7 or greater.

To convert the fonts to EOT format, you will need to use the WEFT 3 Font Conversion Application which may be downloaded from:
http://www.microsoft.com/typography/WEFT.mspx

IDAutomation includes a general installation exe that copies the font files to the computer. To install the fonts on multiple machines, you will need to use an installation utility capable of pulling the fonts that are included in the package. IDAutomation does not provide support for this process.
