Installing countless fonts—each in its own folder—onto WinXP machine

Mass-installing fonts onto an XP machine when each font is enclosed in its own folder.

The trouble lies in Windows' apparent unwillingness to accept a folder with a font/fonts within it as something installable. Opening each folder up manually (I'm using MainType to ensure that fonts are not only copied into the font directory but also added the registry) and then installing the contents will, if I continue this way, take many more hours than I wish to spend. I would be un-conveyably grateful should you provide me some way out of this tedium. Is there any way (application, command-line script, workaround) to mass install everything in one shot with the folder structure I must work with? We're talking GenericFontsToBeInstalled>GenericFont1>GenericFont1Regular.otf, Generic Font1Italic.otf as an example.
Looking forward to your advice. Best!
