Hi,

you had *not* a similar problem ! The problem was solved during the last
week.

To resolve your problem:

upgrade to the latest version of MikTeX 1.20d. Then the pk font-creation
works.
You may add the path to the Mathematica fonts to the miktex.ini file and
look
in the resources generated by the file-database program if the
Mathematica fonts
listed.

The best way is to copy the $TopDirectory/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1 to
your
texmf-tree $TEXMF/fonts/type1/wolfram and update the filename database.

I have tested it with 3 MikTeX installations (Win95, 98, NT) and it
works
on all systems.

Contact me again if you run into any problems.

Hope that helps
  Jens
