Error Adding Font

A user reported getting an error when adding a font that said, “The font.ttf file is currently being used and cannot be replaced. Wait until Windows is finished using the file, and then try again.”

Since they are not a local Administrator they are not able to add fonts. Instead of giving them local Administrator rights you can give the local Users group (or just the user’s account) Write access to C:\Windows\Fonts.
