Apologies if you've already read this but I wasn't sure if it had reached the mailing list correctly.

Hello all,
I originally thought that I had a problem related to WinEdt's handling of
MetaPost but further experimentation (install TeXLive and use WinEdt's
facility to switch between systems) has shown that MikTeX's MetaPost is
broken in some way.

A minimal example is

        label(btex $x$ etex, origin);

A pop-up error message is the result from WinEdt:
latex.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point
could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Program Files
(x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\latex.exe.

Running from a command prompt results in the same pop-up. When its [OK] is
clicked this is what I have:

X:\School\Maths>mpost -tex=latex testmp01.mp
This is MetaPost, version 2.000 (MiKTeX 2.9.6500) (MiKTeX 2.9.6500)

                  $x$ etex, origin);
Transcript written on testmp01.log.

I running Windows 10 and the 64-bit version of MikTeX. One consequence of
having to install and use TeXLive is that it seems to show up how much
faster MikTeX is :-)

Can anyone help?
