# [metapost] Metapost btex etex problem

Dear Akira,

I had a look at my environment variables and found that in the User PATH Variable there was an entry with an old (TeXLive 2012) bin\win32 directory. After eliminating this entry, I could compile mpsimple.mp.Thus,  I obtain a file mpsimple.1! Finally!

If I open this file in psv.exe I cannot see the letter A (I see only the horizontal line). There is a message " Error: undefined in cmmi12" at the lower right corner of psv. But I assume this can be easier solved than the first issue. How can I make the font visible in psv?

If I include the mpsimple.1 into a file mpsimple.tex
=============================
\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\DeclareGraphicsRule{.1}{mps}{*}{}% In order to include
\begin{document}
\begin{center}
\includegraphics{mpsimple.1}
\end{center}
\end{document}
=============================
And do a pdflatex mpsimple.tex it works (and I can see the letter as well)!!!

Thanks again for your help in solving this problem.

Best regards
Ralf

Dear Ralf,

> I tried but unfortunately without success:

Try
kpsewhich --var-value=MPXCOMMAND

It should print nothing.
If it shows something, remove the definition of MPXCOMMAND in your texmf.cnf's and environment variables.

Best,
Akira
