If you need to install MiKTeX packages without using the MiKTeX Package Manager (mpm.exe), you may run into problems with missing font maps that are not properly registered in the index. A typical error message looks as follows:
miktex-makepk: PK font md-chr8y could not be created.
!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file md-chr8y): Font md-chr8y at 600 not found
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!
A simple solution – that worked out for me at least – is to run updmap.exe one or several times.
