I'm using Windows Vista 64bit and installed the rsfs font by 
right-clicking the .pfm files. I thought I had to use the .pfb files, 
but Windows did not recognize those and didn't show "Install" in the 
context menu. After installing the .pfm files I could find them in

Is this a typo and do you mean .pfm file? Otherwise I don't get it. 
Should I just copy the .pfb files to "C:\Windows\Fonts", too? Did 
something went wrong with installation?

When running "mtxrun --script fonts --reload"

there were the lines

fonts           | names | identifying system font files with suffix otf
fonts           | names | adding path from OSFONTDIR: c:/windows/fonts
fonts           | names | adding path from fontconfig file: c:/windows/fonts

in the output, so I guess OSFONTDIR is correct (where would I change it, 
anyway?) as "c:/windows/fonts" is considered. Here mtxrun tries to 
identify fonts with a number of "suffixes". It only consideres otf, ttf, 
ttc, dfont and afm (and caps versions). Shouldn't there be pfm or pfb as

I tried this and got a lot of fonts (around 900) printed to screen, 
however "rsfs" was not present in this list.

What did I wrong? Thank you very much for your patience!
