I think the wrong map file was given here.  By default, MetaPost
searches for mpost.map.  If that fails as an exclusive TeXLive support
it looks for pdftex.map as a fall back.  Unfortunately, I have no idea
what's the correct name in your set-up.  Could you please post the
console output with the correct map file?

Thanks!  I'm quite sure now there's a bug in the MiKTeX sources.

Again the map file could not be found.  For the sake of completeness,
could you please re-check with the correct map file?

Best regards,
