I have a problem with the following tex excerpt in relation to moderncv on MiKTeX 2.9 on Windows 7.

I do not get the title of my CV.

"! Undefined control sequence.
l.44 \makecvtitle
The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined."

The line \makecvtitle is part of my template, that compiles fine on Linux with TeX Live. I use pdflatex, also tried tex. No change. Can somebody help me to target this issue?

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,roman]{moderncv}   % possible options include font size ('10pt', '11pt' and '12pt'), paper size ('a4paper', 'letterpaper', 'a5paper', 'legalpaper', 'executivepaper' and 'landscape') and font family ('sans' and 'roman')
% moderncv themes
\moderncvstyle{classic}                        % style options are 'casual' (default), 'classic', 'oldstyle' and 'banking'
\moderncvcolor{orange}                          % color options 'blue' (default), 'orange', 'green', 'red', 'purple', 'grey' and 'black'
\renewcommand{\familydefault}{\rmdefault}    % to set the default font; use '\sfdefault' for the default sans serif font, '\rmdefault' for the default roman one, or any tex font name

% character encoding
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}                  % if you are not using xelatex ou lualatex, replace by the encoding you are using

% adjust the page margins

% personal data

    Looks as if your moderncv is outdated. Check for updates (in admin mode and as user). – Ulrike Fischer Jul 25 '12 at 9:10
