I use TexLive 2011 and Ghostscript 9.05 on Windows XP. I see that my WinEdt when calling ps2pdf for the ps > pdf conversion is using Ghostscript 9.04 (which I do not have anymore on my machine).

Thus I would like to verify from the command prompt in Windows the version of ps2pdf. Which command to use?

A related question: Is gswin32c.exe called by ps2pdf.exe ?

Thanks a lot...

ps2pdf -v - should show you the version of Ghostscript (gswin32c.exe). It should be the same as rungs -v (GS used internally by TL).
