Hi Tako, thank you for your response.
  There is nothing in mpxerr.log. 
  When I was trying to use mptopdf to convert mp file to pdf, it didn't produce myfile-1.pdf... type files, even though it said it was converted. So, I looked up this manual
  and typed "pdftex --ini mptopdf" at command prompt without understanding. Magically, it produced pdf files, but now metapost doesn't work. Maybe, the process "pdftex --ini mptopdf" had changed the path of metapost execution.

Can you check what is in mpxerr.log? It looks like the 'normal'
latex command in your path has a problem with something, that
does not happen with the executable in texlive's bin directory.
