I am sorry I did not make this clear. I uninstalled texlive before I
installed xemtex. So what you have suggested below I have already
tried. As I wrote earlier, the log file shows that no reference is made
to the abp.map. Perhaps I am doing something pretty foolish, or the
Acrotex presentation bundle is not compatible with Xemtex. I will try
to ask D.P.Story as well, be he has not shown any familiarity with
xemtex: his instructions are only for miktex and Y&Ytex.

I will try this once more and let you know.

I recall that I earlier had problem running pdflates with files which
contained .eps graphics files. SO I had to get the dvi file first,
convert it to ps and then pdf. Is Xemtex able to handle files with .eps
