Default Windows: Old PS font, no PFM files?

Spring cleaning came early this year, and I found a set of floppies with some fonts I don't have installed, the Monotype Bulmer family.

I didn't try to run any of the accompanying software figuring it is more likely to explode than anything else. (Monotype Font Foundry Utility) But the font files include AFM, PFB, INF and no PFM files.

PFM files are the only files that Windows wants to see these days, naturally.

Does anyone remember--how did we generate PFM files? How can I generate them today?
