Fixing missing font maps in MiKTeX

If you need to install MiKTeX packages without using the MiKTeX Package Manager (mpm.exe), you may run into problems with missing font maps that are not properly registered in the index. A typical error message looks as follows:

miktex-makepk: PK font md-chr8y could not be created.

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file md-chr8y): Font md-chr8y at 600 not found
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

A simple solution – that worked out for me at least – is to run updmap.exe one or several times.
