I'm sure that Staszek means getnonfreefonts.  If getnonfreefonts is a
UNIX shell script, you have TeX Live 2005 installed.  In TeX Live 2007
it's a Perl script.  The Windows variant claims to be a batch file but
actually it's the same Perl script as for UNIX (not only Linux, BTW).

Martin proposed XeTeX.  If it's not a big problem for you to upgrade
to TeX Live 2007 you get both, XeTeX and a version of getnonfreefonts
which works on Windows.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
