I have several Type1 fonts which need to be installed such that LaTeX knows about them. To achive this under Miktex you have to follow these steps:

  1. Setup you localtexmf tree with the fonts or copy your localtexmf tree from a different installation into the corresponding Miktex directory.
  2. Run initexmf --edit-config-file updmap. That will open an editor.
  3. Insert in that file all map files in the following form:
    Map xyz.map
    Save the file afterwards.
  4. Run initexmf --mkmaps to rebuild the font map files.
