I'm using TeXworks for writing a book in LaTex based on the Springer Template available on http://www.springer.com/authors/book+authors?SGWID=0-154102-12-417900-0
During the first test of their sample, TeXworks asked me to install
fonts\type1\urw\symbol\usyr.pfb as it is missing from the package
symbol. However, whatever I try, I get following error during the installation:
