FontPro requires tftopl.exe, pltotf.exe, vptovf.exe, and vftovp.exe. MikTeX's version does not work. I install cygwin, install LCDF tools from w32tex distribution, and also the above 4 programs from w32tex, and then run FontPro. It works.

At first you don't need an equivalent for fontenc but for inputenc. You should (like inputenc) make the non-ascii chars active and map them to suitable commands. E.g. in an 8-bit encoded file you could do something like this: %OT1-encoded font \catcode`\ä=13 \defä{\"a} Räuber \bye When using a T1-encoded font life is a bit easier, as a lot of chars are ...

But then I found a more elegant way to make the fake small caps (and fake mid caps) in Faking small caps in XeLaTeX: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt,twoside]{memoir} ...

In general, I recommend working with the UTF-8 encoding for your LaTeX source code: % \usepackage{german} % outdated \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} % the new way \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lmodern} If you are working with the ISO-Latin-1 encoding, use this: % \usepackage{german} % outdated ...
