If I use them I don't get the MTMS and MTMSB fonts as described in the guide just the old times new roman. Anyone seen this before?

EDIT: Minimal Example:


And in the log file (which is way too long to reproduce here) it says that:

No file Umtms.fd. on input line 5. LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `U/mtms/m/n' undefined.

I can confirm that this problem also occurs on my system (MacTeX2011, MacOS X 10.7.2): when loading the mtpro2 package with either the mtplusscr or mtpluscal options, I get Computer Modern, and not TNR as you note, when executing the commands \mathscr{ABC} and \mathcal{ABC}. – Mico Nov 16 '11 at 3:19
Make a small complete example, compile it with pdflatex and then show the example and the log-file. – Ulrike Fischer Nov 16 '11 at 9:09
I added a minimal example with the relevant part of the log file in the post. – Hesam Nov 18 '11 at 6:04
@Mico --- does my answer fix the problem on your machine? – Ian Thompson Mar 4 '12 at 13:09
@IanThompson -- Thanks for contacting me. I'm afraid I only have the mtpro2 package, but not the mtpro or mtpb packages. Hence I can't run your MWE. – Mico Mar 4 '12 at 18:33

The documentation of MTPro2 (my version is 2.3) states that the options mtpluscal and mtplusscr "assign the MTMS and MTMSB script fonts, which were part of Y&Y’s MathTıme Plus collection, to \mathcal and \matbcal", and \mathscr and \mathscrb, respectively. I read that as these fonts are not part of MTPro2, but are just made bound to these commands if you happen to have the older MathTime Plus collection.
