I've installed MikTex using the proTeXt Installation. Since the Ghostscript is already included in this big proTeXt file, how should I install it?

Could I install from the package manager of the MiKTeX or should I install the Ghostscript independently by just running the .exe file contained in the proTeXt ?

To clarify, I installed MiKTeX using protext setup.exe file. But Ghostscript is not installed for whatever reason I don't know during the installation. Now I want to install the Ghostscript so is there a way to add the installation of Ghostscript using the package manager of the MiKTeX or should I just install gs independently.

Did you not have a similar version of short pdf document:page 5 inside protext installation that guides the installation automatically. Should I install the Ghostscript independently by just running the .exe file contained in the proTeXt: Answer: Yes incase you failed using short pdf route Although I don't use proTeXt now so not much clear idea . –  texenthusiast Aug 12 '13 at 21:17

proTeXt 2013 installation has a similar latest version of short pdf document:page 5 that guides the MiKTeX,TeXStudio(replaced with TeXniccenter),Ghostscript and GSview installation.

"Should I install the Ghostscript independently by just running the .exe file contained in the proTeXt"

Answer: Yes incase you failed using short pdf route Although I don't use proTeXt now so not much clear idea.

Not recommended for a very new user but incase you wish to install Ghostscript separately via website. If you find any issues please report them with proper errors and specifications of computer although there are no known bugs reported.
