All needed files should be created in /texmf-local/...,
supposing that you have write access.

Now run texhash and then

updmap-sys --enable Map=VectoraLTPro-Roman.map

Now open the the style file VectoraLTPto.sty which should be
in .../texmf-local/tex/latex/VectoraLTPro/
and change the line




or simply delete it and load fontenc in the LaTeX file.

I had only the LTStd version of Vectora (instead of the Pro) and I can
use the font. My example:

	foo bar baz
