I found those pages too. Reinstalling as suggested in the first page
didn't fix the error I'm getting. (Mine's similar but not identical to
the one on the sourceforge page.)

Yes, with no luck.
I might have found the problem, but I still don't know how to solve it. I
decided to open "updmap.cfg" in a text editor, and saw that it doesn't
have the lines from step 5 in http://www.pctex.com/kb/56.html. I searched
for other files with the same name, and found one in my "roaming" folder
under "appdata". It was created when I did step 4. It contains only the
%% T1 font configuration settings. See the MiKTeX manual for help.
# MathTimePro II
It doesn't seem to matter what directory I'm in when I run the initexmf
line and the updmap line in steps 4 and 7. It's not modifying the right
copy of updmap.cfg. (Or what I think it the right copy, the one under
C:\Program Files (x86)\MikTeX\....) I can't modify that file directly in
a text editor, since I don't have permission to save to its location.
Making a copy of it in My Documents, modifying it in a text editor, and
then replacing the original with that copy didn't work. Do you know if
that's the copy that needs to be changed? I couldn't find anything in the
MikTeX manual about it.
