The code provided as an answer on this post used to work. To ease things, I reproduce it here, only in a more condensed form since I'm interested just in the PSTricks part -- the minted part working alright.




and now the minted part: (no problem here, I've just deleted it)


What I get is a fine pdfLaTeX -shell-escape compilation, but no picture and the dreaded (by me, at least) message "Creation of <jobname>-autopp.pdf failed". Is there somebody who can reproduce this behavior or suggest what's been going on? I'm using an updated (about two weeks old) (semi-)full installation of MiKTeX 2.9 on Windows XP.

EDIT: In accordance with Joseph Wright's suggestion to issue the \listfiles command, I append next the list appearing in my .log file:

Could you edit in the File list you get in the .log file if you use \listfiles in the input? This seems to be 'works for me' With TeX Live 2013, Win7. – Joseph Wright Aug 28 '13 at 8:05
@JosephWright: Done. – Marcos Aug 28 '13 at 8:15
Works fine for me (miktex 2.9). In most cases pdfcrop is the problem so try \usepackage[crop=off]{auto-pst-pdf}. – Ulrike Fischer Aug 28 '13 at 8:21
I also have no problems on Win 7, MikTeX 2.9, TeXnicCenter 2 – percusse Aug 28 '13 at 8:21
I'm updating again my installation and will try as soon as the process is over. – Marcos Aug 28 '13 at 8:25
