I have a bunch of .wmf image files. Is there a way that I can insert those in a LaTeX document without having to convert them to .eps files?

I am on Windows.

@JosephWright I had seen that question, but the answers seemed to point to converting the .wmf files to .eps files. – Thomas Mar 29 '12 at 20:05
As I said, I think it's related but not necessarily a dupe. The problem is that the short answer here is 'no'! – Joseph Wright Mar 29 '12 at 20:06
@JosephWright Ok, so I have to convert the files? – Thomas Mar 29 '12 at 20:07

The .wmf graphics format is not supported directly by any TeX engines. Thus the files will always have to be converted to .eps or .pdf format. This is discussed in Inserting a .EMF file into a LaTeX document. focussing on .emf files, but some of the information there also applies to .wmf files.
