I suspect that you're encountering this error message during the
conversion of the intermediate DVI file to PostScript.

The fix is to configure DVIPS so that it knows where to find the Type 1
versions of the Math fonts.

Under MikTeX, this is done thorugh the central TeX configuraiton file.

The variable that specifies PostScript "header" files like fonts is

The path to the fonts can be determined on your system by evaluating the
following expression in a Mathematica notebook.

ToFileName[{$TopDirectory, "SystemFiles", "Fonts", "Type1"}]
