I have done a similar thing in the past where I scaled up/down a META file.
I assume as this question is in the C++ area that you want to do this in code and not using a graphics package.

In Visual C++,
You have to use the EnumMetaFile and then loop through all the GDI calls in the Metafiles. You then have to look at each call (you can use a big switch statement for each type of call) and then adjust the co-ordinates making up the call accordingly depending on the angle of rotation.

You will first need to decide on the translation method i.e. which corner of the Metafile you want to rotate about. I suggest you use the (0,0) corner, it will make the maths easier.

There is a (small) chance that I can find the code I used for this kind of thing but hopefully this should give you enough of an idea,

The best thing is if I can dig out the code I have that does this.
