Adding a new font to windows.

First, this is an issue with Windows that I am trying to find a work around for:
I have my users install my Java application using Installshield. During the installation process, I copy new font files to the \windows\fonts or \winnt\fonts area depending on whether they are using Windows 98 or WinNT/2000.
These font files are copied here just fine, but they are not seen by my application (or any other windows application) unless I go into the Control Panel and click on the Fonts folder. Then the fonts get refreshed and my application can see them.
Has anyone run across this. I am trying to not have the user go into the Control panel if I can help it.
Thanks for your time.
