# TexLive 2011 dviout bug/problem! [OS: Win 7 64bit, editor: Winedt 7] [closed]

Yesterday I decided to install TexLive 2011... but when I compile my latex documents in dvi, the dvi viewer (dviout) hangs, and I have to force the exit of the program. The dvi file is sucessfully created, but the viewer stucks saying "gswin32.exe is making tmpps1.pbm". This is so strange! I need to compile in dvi, because I often use pstricks in my documents. Thank you in advance

ps I found this http://tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2010-January/024251.html, but I'm not able to find dviout.bat

Welcome to TeX.SE! A quick question: You mention you compile your output to dvi and then want to view the dvi file. Is there a reason for you not using pdflatex, which creates a pdf file directly? – Mico Jul 5 '12 at 10:26
Thank you for the answer! As I said, I need to compile in dvi because I often use pstricks in my documents. So there dviout is totally unusable? It's a waste of time to compile 3 times to view what I wrote! – user16296 Jul 5 '12 at 12:25
On a windows installation, there probably isn't a file called `dviout.bat`. However, there should be a file called `dviout.exe`, most likely under TEXMFHOME/2011/bin/win32, where TEXMFHOME is the root directory of your TeXLive installation (e.g., c:\texlive). If no such file is there, something probably went wrong during the installation of TeXLive. – Mico Jul 5 '12 at 17:31
Check your Texlive path in 'Change my Enviromental Variables' in the Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts. For using pstricks with `PDFLATEX` try including `\usepackage[pdf]{pstricks}` in the preamble to avoid the dvi route. – texenthusiast Jul 7 '12 at 19:47
This sounds like a defective installation, and the best plan would be to reinstall. As such, we are unlikely to have a good answer, and it looks 'too localiszed'. – Joseph Wright Sep 21 '12 at 6:23
