Yes, thank you. (System: Windows 98, TeXLive updated to the actual version.)

O.k. and that is my problem:
(a) I have downloaded from Ctan the dstroke.map. Nevertheless thank you
very much for including these lines!!!
(b) BUT: This does not work! I can enable and disable other maps but not
this dstroke.map. First I have saved it to
texmf/dvips/doublestroke/dstroke.map, then to
texmf/dvips/misc/doublestroke/dstroke.map and then to
texmf/dvips/misc/dstroke.map and up to check everything to
texmf/fontname/dstroke.map. But updmap --enable MixedMap (or my wrong used
Map here, but I have tried MixedMap also) dstroke.map does not work here.
Nothing happens (after a rebuild of the ls-R-filename database):
C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\susaneu>updmap --enable MixedMap dstroke.map
using config file f:/Programme/TeXLive/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.cfg
f:/Programme/TeXLive/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.cfg unchanged. Map files not
Because other font maps were easily disabled by updmap and then I can
enable then I do not know what is going wrong here.
Other point: My first suggestion was I put it wrong in the file structure
due to the "new" TDS conventions. I'm reading here the arising problems,
e.g. thread "[tex-live] map, enc and bugs.html" and I have had masssive
problems to put my personal files in a right way to being accessed by
TeXLive. This is a big problem for me because I'm normally using "Textures"
from BlueSky-Research on my old Mac but I'm trying to port many of my
documents to Windows and TexLive and there it takes me very long to get
them run because the TDS conventions and the search paths are making the
most trouble for me.
I'm a little bit suprised what I'm doing wrong here and my only idea is to
add them totally by hand to the .cfg and .ps configuration files?
