Hm, if you did the second it would explain why it doesn't work for xetex
(but it wouldn't explain why it works for you now in miktex 2.7 if you
did the installation 3 years ago).

In any case. At first try the following:

On a command line run
initexmf --edit-config-file=updmap

This should open a local updmap.cfg. Add

Map lucida.map 

(if it isn't already there). Save and close the file. Then run


on the command line. Try again your example. If it still doesn't work
you will have to check some configuration files. Make a list of *all*
locations in the various roots of the following files:
config.ps, pdftex.cfg, dvipdf(mx).cfg, pdftex.map, psfonts.map and

If it works check your example with pdflatex. If pdflatex complains
about double entries in the map file, you will probably have to clean up
the pdflatex/dvips configuration.
