hi Mr. Hans,

I was trying to run the metafun example as given
below. It gave one blank pdf page.

I moved the metafun.mem file to localtexmf/miktex/mem
and write18 enable in miktex.ini.

I did try it live context. the result is same can you
tell me the error. is it my system is not configured
properly. If so why is it live context gives same

Thanks a lot.
