I am using eps graph for my work. Latex version is TeXstudio 2.12.10, Miktex 2.9. Code to include graph

    \caption{$T_d$ under various $V_m$ }

I have included \usepackage{epstopdf} but still, it gives me the error

MiKTeX GPL Ghostscript 9.19: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1 xdvipdfmx:fatal: pdf_ref_obj(): passed invalid object. Output file removed.

Any, help is appreciated.

  • can you provide the image Graph1a.eps for a test?

I have no problem whle compiling this file, called test.tex, under MiKTeX:


Note, however, that, as stated at the epstodpf package dosumentation, the command line should be:

pdflatex --enable-write18 test.tex

    shell-escape is not needed! epstopdf is one of the allowed external programs

    actually it's repstopdf, a restricted version of epstopdf that's allowed. Also, use the graphicx package rather than the epstopdf package. Sep 11 '18 at 19:19
