[texhax] Problem with dviout

You were right; the route to mf was not in the path (but why didn't the 
installation program do that?).  Now there are new errors:

C:\math>C:\TEXLIV~1\bin\win32\mktexpk.exe --mfmode / --dpi 600 --bdpi 600 
600/600 cmr6
mktexpk: C:\Users\Michael 
//cmr6.600pk already exists.

The claim is that the font already exists.  Fine, but it is not being 
found by dviout.  There were repeated errors like that and then the final 
display was blank.  I assume that there are additional environment 
variables to be set, but I thought the lsr file contained all that 
information.  And yes, I did run mktexlsr (having added some addtional 
files, mainly for xypic).

Incidentally, the help files for dviout are useless since they are 
apparently in previous format for, say, XP, and not valid under vista.
