You have to make sure that latex is used instead of plain tex.
On teTeX/Web2c, you can do this (commandline option):

   $ mpost -tex=latex myfile

or this (setting an environment variable)

   $ TEX=latex && mpost myfile

No doubt, something similar will work on miktex as well.

Please check the miktex manual.

Greetings, Taco
