Sorry, my suggestion for the setting of dviout was incomplete.
You have to tell dviout places of virtual fonts etc. as well as
those of pk fonts.

Please write all font-related directories in TEXROOT of dviout like

TEXROOT: c:\TL2006\texmf-var;c:\TL2006\texmf-dist;c:\TL2006\texmf

and set TEXPK of dviout as

TEXPK:  ^r\pk\\^s.^dpk;^r\vf\\^s.vf;^r\ovf\\^s.ovf;^r\tfm\\^s.tfm

Hi Gregor,
You can do manually the above setting yourself:
(1) Option ---> Setup Parameters... ---> Font  (Menu of dviout)
(2) Click "SAVE"
(3) Click "OK"
