Getting the following error when compiling a .tex file from a collaborator who is probably using another OS:

Process started: pdflatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "main".tex

Sorry, but miktex-makemf did not succeed for the following reason: The t1xbtt source file could not be found. The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again: C:/Users/braz/AppData/Local/MiKTeX/2.9/miktex/log/miktex-makemf.log You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if

you need help.

Sorry, but miktex-makepk did not succeed for the following reason: PK font t1xbtt could not be created. The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again: C:/Users/braz/AppData/Local/MiKTeX/2.9/miktex/log/miktex-makepk.log You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if you need help.

Process exited with error(s)

I looked at the miktex-makemf.log and it says:

I have no idea how to go from here, and web searches did not seem to help. Any suggestions?

    Run from the command line updmap --admin. The messages mean that these type1 fonts are not found, and MiKTeX tries to make bitmap fonts instead. – Bernard Dec 20 '17 at 18:33
  • That did it, thanks! You should write an answer so I can choose it. Anyway, how is a user supposed to know that?... – user118967 Dec 20 '17 at 19:11

    Well… asking on this site. It happens from time to time with MiKTeX. I agree it's not so easy for a beginner to know type 1 fonts are found through a few databases called dvips.map, pdftex.map,…, which have to be updated each time a new font is installed. If you're interested in how it works, you can look the Philip Lehmann's The Fonts Installation Guide. – Bernard Dec 20 '17 at 19:26
  • @Bernard Do you want to answer or is there a duplicate we can mark this as? I imagine there must be by now - if not, somebody should write one. – cfr Dec 27 '17 at 1:45

According to Bernard,

Run from the command line updmap --admin. The messages mean that these type1 fonts are not found, and MiKTeX tries to make bitmap fonts instead.

More information on Philip Lehmann's The Fonts Installation Guide.

Try adding these two lines to the preamble:

\usepackage{sansmathaccent}
\pdfmapfile{+sansmathaccent.map}
