I have a trouble in including eps/pdf files using XeLaTeX.

It only give a white patch where the figure supposed to be if I compile with WinEdt 8 (Build: 20130513 (v. 8.0) - 64-bit), without any error/warning message.

Same files worked well a year ago. I tried to execute the old tex files but only get a white patch of figures now. I tried another computer with WinEdt 9 and it works. But it doesn't work with WinEdt 9 in my computer. Same figures work with PDFTeXify.

Fortunately, it works well with TeXworks Version 0.4.5 r.1280.

All things above suggest there is something in WinEdt is wrong. It is very strange because I didn't change any setting of LaTeX and WinEdt.

My system is Windows 7 professional + MiKTeX 2.9.

Here is my sample code:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{graphicx}
%\usepackage{epstopdf} % with/without is the same

\begin{document}
Result compiled with XeLaTeX:
\begin{figure}[!h]
  \centering
  \includegraphics[width=.8\textwidth]{fig1}
  \caption{A figure is supposed to show above}\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}
\end{document} 

Here is the results given by two tex editor: enter image description here

As requested, this is my log file:

The diagnosis:

WinEdt and External Applications

WinEdt does its best to detect your TeX System and accessories from your PATH and Windows Registry. With properly installed accessories no changes to WinEdt's default settings should be required in order to have a fully operational interface to your TeX System.

This report shows what WinEdt found in your Registry. It also suggests possible solutions to remedy any problem with finding and launching external applications. Although it is possible to manually correct certain locations (such as TeX Root folder) it is best to ensure that your software is properly installed and let WinEdt automatically detect all the executables. This allows for smooth upgrades.

If you need further assistance, include this report in your support request. Do not, however, expect any miracles: if WinEdt could not find any trace of your TeX System or other accessories they are probably not properly installed. Reinstalling the problematic software and restarting WinEdt after that might be by far the best way to resolve the situation...

Summary :-)
===========

Your TeX installation appears to be fine. If you experience problems after an application has been launched this usually isn't a WinEdt-related matter. In such case, you should test a problematic application from the Command Prompt, consult the documentation that comes with your (TeX) software, and try to locate the real source of your problem...

Searching for Executables:
==========================

WinEdt will try to locate external executables based on the PATH Environment Variable and Windows Registry. If some components are not found follow the instructions. Some applications such as, for example, GS or GSView are optional; you can safely ignore any messages about the "missing" accessories that you are not intending to use...

  • Why don't you try to see what happens if you install latest version of WinEdt (9.1)? – Bernard May 27 '15 at 0:11
  • Show the log-file. Show your settings in winedt-options-execution modes-xelatex. Check in execution modes the tab "diagnosis". – Ulrike Fischer May 27 '15 at 6:58
  • Thanks @UlrikeFischer. I've updated the setting you requested. – kyokoxie Jun 2 '15 at 2:20

    There is nothing that suggests that winedt is faulty somehow. How are you viewing the pdf produced by winedt/xelatex? Did you try another viewer? – Ulrike Fischer Jun 2 '15 at 7:13
