hi wolfgang and all,

I did configured the pstoedit as you said and
generated new metafun.mem.
Compilation of makempy complains of 

process aborted : invalid 'texexec --batch -- once
--interface=en --pdf' run

I did check pdftops as per requirement of mmakempy.pdf
manual. pdftops.exe is not available in miktex/bin/.

what does the error message point at. do I have to to
install pdftops.exe. or configure from somewhere else.
gsview 4.7 does not provide pdftops but pdftotxt3.exe

I am attaching the makeMPY generated file.

thanks all
