I've been looking into the same issue lately.  It would be great
if there was a simple way to convert postscript to windows
metafiles, but I haven't been able to find anything.

There is a library called libemf (enhanced metafile library,
http://libemf.sourceforge.net/) that might do it - "pstoedit uses
this library for creating WMF/EMF files under non-Windows
