I have tried to use "windvi" without installing the
CD-ROM under Windows 98. I have set environment
variable VARTEXMF to a local existing directory on the
hard drive and adjusted PATH to include the
TeX-Live binary directory for win32.

The document contains CM and EC fonts. But the
font generation hangs. It works if I create the
directory "fonts" in the VARTEXMF tree.

Because lack of time I have not tested xdvi under
Linux, so that it should be checked, if pk font
generation works with missing "fonts" directory.

Yours sincerely
