Hi Willi,

I don't use the minimal tree (but something similar), so maybe I am wrong...

mp.pool should be in the texmf-mswin/web2c directory (pool/mem-files).
In my copy it contains pdf(e)tex.pool, mp.pool and metafun.mem.

It seems that your $TEXFORMATS var points to 
C:/NEWCON~1/tex/texmf-mswin/web2c/pdfetex/,
but it should be C:/NEWCON~1/tex/texmf-mswin/web2c.
The fmt-files (pdf(e)tex.fmt, mptopdf.fmt) are then automatically 
created in the pdfetex-dir.

Hope that helps.
