Based on the name of the function, I'm assuming that you're using the
emmathfnt toolkit that is downloadable from MathSource.  The top level
function calls an MS-DOS batch file named emmathfnt.bat.  If the settings
in this batch file do not agree with the acutual setup of Mathematica on
your system, then it is quite possible for things to go very wrong.  Locat
this batch file on your system, make sure that it is located in a
directory listed on the PATH environment variable, and then check its
contents with a text editor to make sure that the paths referenced therein
are accurate.

If, after verifying that the batch file is set up properly, you find that
things are still not working, please let me know.  The emmathfnt toolkit
is minimally supported, but I doubt that you're doing anything so exotic
that would make it hard to diagnose.
