You need to put it to
(or truetype instead of opentype; I'm not sure what kind of font it
is, but on the other hand I don't think that it really matters)

In MKII the folder texmf-local and TEXMFHOME (%HOME%/texmf) should be
automatically searched (other trees not), but I do not guarantee that
MKIV does that in the same way.
In any case,
should update the files for MKIV. In MKII that would be mktexlsr.
