I'm using MikTeX system and recently I met a problem when converting
metapost files to PDF files with the program 'epstopdf.exe'

Problem description:

             mp.exe             epstopdf.exe
figure.mp  ---------> figure.1 ---------------> figure.pdf

When I used some codes such as 'label(...)' to produce some text,
mp.exeworks fine with no error, but
epstopdf.exe print error message like:

epstopdf.exe figure.1
Error: /undefined in cmr10

Current allocation mode is local
Last OS error: No such file or directory
MiKTeX GPL Ghostscript 8.15: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

How to solve this problem?
