Since the error message complains about feta20.afm, it has nothing directly
to do with ec-fonts-mftraced. Rather, I suspect that you have teTeX 3 installed, which is a bit more picky about where font related files are located, compared to earlier teTeX versions, see
for example. However, when browsing the mailing list archives, I get the
impression that this problem should have been solved already in LilyPond
2.4.5. Maybe you just have to run the command
to refresh the file name database to make it work again.

but I need version 2.4.6. (BTW I normally use the newest Windows version). The mail archives showed several similar problems (can't find feta...) and maybe the solution is to get an older version of ec-
fonts-mftraced (1.0.2). Is there any chance?

You could do the following: install 2.6.5-1 for Windows from
and run it from Cygwin. This is perhaps easier.

When you run Cygwin's setup.exe, it first downloads all packages to be
installed.  If you did not delete those, they are still on your hard

Thank you, I managed to reinstall 2.4.6-1 from my harddisk, but when running, I get the following message:
error: can't find 'feta20.afm'
Music font has not been installed properly. Aborting

I remember having seen this message before, and that there was a solution, but this was quite long ago and I don't remember.
Can anyone help?

Thank you
