I am trying to install MathPSfrag and I'm going through the MathPSfrag-Test.nb included in the download. The notebook asks me to input the paths to certain executables. My input looks like this:

  GhostscriptExecutable -> 
   "C:\\Program Files\\gs\\gs8.70\\bin\\gswin32c.exe", 
   LaTeXExecutable -> 
   "C:\\Program Files\\MiKTeX 2.8\\miktex\\bin\\latex.exe",    
  DvipsExecutable -> 
   "C:\\Program Files\\MiKTeX 2.8\\miktex\\bin\\dvips.exe"]; 

I'm on a Windows Vista machine and quite sure that the paths are correct, but the notebook fails to find the programs.

Has someone installed MathPSfrag succesfully under Windows and knows the right paths, or is there some obvious mistake?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Use for spaces (or the 101010 button) to mark a block as code. Then the backslashes show up fine. – Caramdir Dec 5 '10 at 0:25
Is this sorted? Why are the path separators in your input doubled: if they are input to a test program I would think they do not need to be escaped. Have you tried using the usual forward slash as path separator? It may be that the program expects native paths. – Charles Stewart Apr 21 '11 at 9:47
Were you able to solve this issue in the meantime? It doesn't look like you are going to get an answer here. The question could be migrated to a sister site, e.g. superuser.com which handles software installation problems. – Martin Scharrer May 6 '11 at 10:28
I'm tending to close this question as "too localized". Please advice if it is still an issue. – Martin Scharrer May 11 '11 at 11:21
I couldn't solve the problem, but currently it's no longer an issue for me. You may close it. – Emerson May 13 '11 at 15:08
