The AddFontResource function adds the font resource from the specified file to the Windows font table. The font can subsequently be used for text output by any Windows-based application.
// pointer to font-resource filename
If the function succeeds, the return value specifies the number of fonts added.
If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
Any application that adds or removes fonts from the Windows font table should notify other windows of the change by sending a WM_FONTCHANGE message to all top-level windows in the operating system. The application should send this message by calling the SendMessage function and setting the hwnd parameter to HWND_BROADCAST.
When an application no longer needs a font resource that it loaded by calling the AddFontResource function, it must remove the resource by calling the RemoveFontResource function.
