Problems with CJK in MiKTeX 2.9 on Windows 7

I have always had a problem with the proper configuration of the CJK package. Here is a sample file that I would normally try to compile.

\documentclass[jcp,aip,preprint,superscriptaddress]{revtex4-1}

\usepackage{CJK}

\begin{document}
\begin{CJK*}{GBK}{}

\title{Paper Title}

\author{L. Wang (ÍõÁ¢·É)}
\affiliation{School 1}

\author{Y. Zheng (Ö£Óê¾ü)}
\affiliation{School 2}

\begin{abstract}
This is the abstract.
\end{abstract}
\maketitle

\section{introduction}

Hello

\end{CJK*}
\end{document}


Here is the error I receive when I try to render the PDF.

Process started

Trying to make PK font gbk50 at 720 DPI...

Running miktex-makemf.exe...

miktex-makemf: The gbk source file could not be found. Running ttf2pk.exe...

miktex-makepk: PK font gbk50 could not be created. cjk_test2.dvi -> cjk_test2.pdf [1 ** WARNING ** Could not locate a virtual/physical font for TFM "gbk50". ** WARNING ** >> There are no valid font mapping entry for this font. ** WARNING ** >> Font file name "gbk50" was assumed but failed to locate that font. ** ERROR ** Cannot proceed without .vf or "physical" font for PDF output... Output file removed.

Process exited with error(s)


So I think I am missing a font. That is why MiKTeX is trying to create the fonts. I have tried to find a gbk50 font with no luck.

Can anyone help?

Why don't you use xeCJK and xetex instead? Are there any advantages of pdftex over xetex at all? –  Siyuan Ren Apr 3 '12 at 12:24

This is simply because you wrongly use CJK package. If you have installed cjk-fonts package in MiKTeX, you can use:

\begin{CJK*}{GB}{gbsn}


\begin{CJK*}{GBK}{}


There are various methods to typeset Chinese in LaTeX, see How does one type Chinese in LaTeX?

This was the perfect solution. –  Brian G. Jul 2 '12 at 18:33
