The OP mentioned re-working the files using inkscape and pdfconverter --- as has been noted previously, using mathptmx gets one the Nimbus clones of Times and one can re-map the fonts when opening the files, or one can install the Nimbus Type 1 fonts into Windows.

The other option would be to switch to xetex or luatex and to use OpenType fonts instead.
