I have very old windvi (0.67.2) and it works fine on W32TeX with
pk fonts and type1 fonts. For type1 fonts, ps2pk or gsftopk
with Ghostscript work fine to create pk fonts.
You said that mktexpk became to work, so I believe that
windvi is still usable as a dvi text previewer.
For graphics, users will use dvips - gsview etc.
