I am trying to use feynmf with miktex on my windows machine to make Feynman diagrams. When I follow the instructions in the template file that comes with feynmf, it does not produce the dvi file correctly.

I am compiling it by running:

latex template
mf fmftempl
latex template

Since the log file is long I have posted the mf log on pastebin: http://pastebin.com/4Gbw792W

It seems like the instructions for compiling it are not correct since this seems pretty simple. I've also had this problem on more than one windows machine so I don't think it's a configuration issue.

(This maybe should be a comment, but I don't have enough rep.)

I get the same error using MacTeX 2010, even with an even more minimal example. There seems to be a problem with feynmf. If you change \usepackage{feynmf} to \usepackage{feynmp} in template.tex and then run

latex template
mpost fmftempl
latex template

it works fine for me.
