Did you try the usual Windows font installation procedure? – Andrey Vihrov Feb 27 '12 at 15:29
Seems to me not related to LaTeX. Possibly off topic? – Thorsten Donig Feb 27 '12 at 16:12
This is clearly related to TeX, the subject tells it all. – topskip Feb 28 '12 at 7:35

You can simply install them in Windows Fonts directory, and then `XePersian` can access them through `\defpersianfont` and etc. to do this:

• Open "Control Panel",
• Choose "Fonts" (perhaps under Appearance and Personalization),
• File>Install New Font...

an alternative solution is to use `ExternalLocation` option, which search for the font in local directory and search paths.

However, installing the font is recommended.

You can also find several persian fonts (including those you mention) in www.parsilatex.com

In Windows 7 one can simply right click the .ttf/.otf files and choose Install. – Torbjørn T. Feb 28 '12 at 7:44
Thank you Mr. Vihrov and Zakeri. Yes installation to Windows font directory was enough. I was under the impression that they have to go to a special TDS location. I got the fonts from parsilatex.com/joomla/… – Maesumi Feb 28 '12 at 22:37
