I have the MathPro Lite fonts from PC TeX on gwtex-2003-2007 (TeX  
Live via i-installer) and they work fine (I followed the installation  
instructions in http://www.pctex.com/kb/54.html). Still, your sample  
file does not compile on my installation but the following  
modification runs without problems. Try it and see what you get:

\renewcommand{\rmdefault}{ptm} % set Times as the default text font

$a = b$

Your options in mtpro2 may be different since you seem to have the  
Complete version (I have lite) but your pctex CD/download should  
include sample templates. (BTW, I don't know if all of these options  
are necessary; I copied them from a pctex template,  they work, never  
touched them again...)
