#### MiKTeX - Error installing font packages

Hey all

I'm running Windows 7 (64bit) and using MiKTeX 2.9. For some reason I
can't correctly install any font using the Package Manager. The
installation of the package works flawlessly, yet when I try to
compile my tex-file, I get errors like these (this time from the
package tgcursor):

Trying to make PK font ec-qcrr at 600 DPI...
Running miktex-makemf.exe...
miktex-makemf: The ec-qcrr source file could not be found.
Running ttf2pk.exe...
miktex-makepk: PK font ec-qcrr could not be created.

==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

Thinking it couldn't create the necessary font files since the
packages are installed in the Program Files (x86) directory and I'm
running this from a DOS-window as a normal use, I opened the DOS-
window as Administrator, but still no luck.

Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

Did you use administrator privileges when installing the packages?
Windows 7 is really frickin' weird about permissions. When installing
from the package manager, it helps to have opened as administrator.
I've also found it sometimes helps to run the file database update as

I did everything as administrator, I'll run the file database update
as non-admin too, and let you know if that helped out.

Probably you have a user pdftex.map. This map is not updated when
you install a package as administrator. Try to run (as user) on a
command line.

Font installation on MiKTeX
I have problems installing Type1 fonts on a MiKTeX system. I recently changed my TeX system from an old EMTeX implementation to MiKTeX. There everything ran smoothly, now the fonts won't work, although I followed installation guidelines. So I thought the error might be that the file format might have changed during the years and I tried to make TeX font files from scratch (.afm, .pfb) and followed the process described in the Font Installation Guide. What I did in both cases: rename .afm, .pfb \latinfamily{...} pltotf, vptovf put files in correct directories make .map file The error mess...

How to install a package (for MiKTex)?

Tomorrow my end user's client will send her a style file, which I gather is one type of package. What do we do with it? I have found many examples of using the usepackage command to refer to particular packages in particular environments. I cannot find a reference that explains what the usepackage parameters mean, which might let me deduce where to put a package so that the command can find them.

MiKTeX and LaTeX, installing packages

Installing type1 font on miktex
In the guides I've seen, (for instance http://www.umantec.nl/fontinst/) vptovf is used along the lines of vptovf <file.vpl> In miktex vptovf (v. 1.5) this doesn't work. It just says Usage: vptovf VPLFILE VFFILE TFMFILE So it wants two more arguments. I assume VPLFILE is the input, VFFILE is the output and TFMFILE are files generated by pltotf. The problem is, I have 16 .vpl files and 4 .tfm-files, so how do I know which tfm files to use for each of the vpl-files?
