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.
