I can't use LaTeX because in my project I am using .png images which, from my limited understanding, I need something like PDFLaTeX for. I also need fouriernc for the New Century Schoolbook font. I also need math-mode elements like \in.

So, combining these 3 things I need doesn't work. If I go back to LaTeX and exclude the images it'll work but I need PDFLaTeX for .png images ..

\usepackage{fouriernc} % use the New Century Schoolbook font




The error that the above code generates with pdflatex is "pdfTeX error: C:\.........\miktex\bin\pdflatex.exe (file fourier-ms): Font fourier-ms at 662 not found"

"...doesn't work" is not clear! Does pdflatex gives you some error messages? Have you try your MWE (without image) with pdflatex? – Paul Gaborit Sep 7 '12 at 6:06
1) Sorry. Error: "pdfTeX error: C:\.........\miktex\bin\pdflatex.exe (file fourier-ms): Font fourier-ms at 662 not found". 2) Yes, I've tried it without image. Indeed my MWE supplied above is without an image. – user16208 Sep 7 '12 at 6:08
Looks like a faulty MiKTeX installation, or perhaps you've turned off install-on-the-fly package installing. If you use the MiKTeX package manager to remove then reinstall fouriernc does the problem remain? – Joseph Wright Sep 7 '12 at 6:12
The map-file for the type1 font has not been activated correctly. The most probably source of the problem is (in a multiuser installation) the existence of local (user) map-file. Check in a log-file of a working document where cames from. If it is in your user profile run (as normal user) in a command line updmap. – Ulrike Fischer Sep 7 '12 at 6:37
Based on the answer below, this is 'too localized' (faulty installation). – Joseph Wright Sep 8 '12 at 5:58

1 Answer 1


Re-installation of fouriernc ended up working.

Also Ulrike Fischer gave a useful comment.
