Did anybody manage to run the new windows executable on source files
with MiKTeX?

>mpost  -version

runs fine and prints version information.  But compiling files fails.

test.mp is attached.  I remember a similar problem with the 0.901
executable and waiting for Christian Schenk updating MiKTeX to the new
version _is_ an option for me.  Taco, don't bother with this.  Thanks
for you work on MetaPost!
