Hello Ashish,
 I use TeXnicCenter and metapost on Win XP using the following:

Path to compiler: C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.8\miktex\bin\mpost.exe

 command line argument:
--tex=latex.exe %tm.mp

The important part is the command line argument, I believe. I hope this

 Subject: [metapost] Help regarding installation/configuration with Metapost


 My name is Ashish Gupta.  For the past two days, I have tried configuring
TeXnicCenter to build/compile MetaPost files but believe I am just missing
something.  I am typing my Master's thesis in LaTex and need to incorporate
graphs.  I am sure this information is available but I am having much
difficulty locating it.  From what I have read so far, I have to build an
output profile.  I have done this a couple of different ways to no avail.  I
am running Windows XP Pro and am currently using MikTex 2.7 with
TeXnicCenter 7.01.

 I apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for any help you may be
able to provide.  If you could give me the directions or lead me to where I
can look, I would be most appreciative.  If you need any further
information, please let me know.

 Thank you, take care, and I hope you have a great day,
