I would like to understand how Portable Apps is able to present the fonts folder as created here https://woorkup.com/install-fonts-without-administrator-access/ to Windows applications without needing admin privileges.
Is someone able to elaborate please?
Follow those instructions, they're pretty clear on what to do.
Here's how we describe it: https://portableapps.com/support/platform#fonts
Sorry, I should have been clearer. I'm not looking for help in making it work.
I am looking to understand how PortableApps is able to load apps into Windows without admin privileges so I can use the same method elsewhere. I was hoping someone who helped write the Portable Apps software would be so kind as to share this information?
The platform is written in Pascal, with the source code available on SourceForge. The relevant chunk of code is in functions.pas. It uses AddFontResource to add the fonts to the system.
