I'm about to submit a Latex template to a colleague organizing a conference but one of my tests fails. This is the one on Windows 7 and Miktex 2.9 with the ps2pdf executable to create the final pdf file. I'm using Ghostscript 9.05 and I just reinstalled Miktex 2.9 to make sure but invariably get the following error message:
Command Line: "C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\ps2pdf.exe" "File.ps" Startup Folder: C:\Users\User\Desktop\conference Error: /undefinedfilename in (File.ps) Operand stack: Execution stack: %interp_exit .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- false 1 %stopped_push Dictionary stack: --dict:1169/1684(ro)(G)-- --dict:0/20(G)-- --dict:77/200(L)-- Current allocation mode is local Last OS error: No such file or directory MiKTeX GPL Ghostscript 9.05: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1`
Everything else works fine. I can open the
File.ps file in Ghostview and convert it to a pdf. The following command line works too:
epstopdf File.ps (even though it should be avoided). Equivalent Adobe tools do work as well. I still want to recommend the
ps2pdf command because this is the one by default. It used to work in the past but fails now.
I do not know what is wrong here with this
ps2pdf command and I am interested in current Windows/Miktex 2.9 users' experience. It looks to me that everything is correctly set-up though.
Edit: there is something wrong is my computer but I cannot figure out what.
