TeX Live is running on a Windows 10 PC.

I have installed the psv package into the TeX Live by means of the Manager. psv complains when run. The error message mentions "display device" and I do not understand what is meant.

Hopefully someone can find where I do wrong.

My command:

c:\sys\texlive\tlpkg\tlpsv>psv \proj\listings\GTX660.pdf

psv opens a window. It shows:

GPL Ghostscript 9.26 (2018-11-20)
Copyright (C) 2018 Artifex Software, Inc.  All rights reserved.
This software comes with NO WARRANTY: see the file PUBLIC for details.

**** Unable to open the display device, quitting.

This is wxLuaGhostscscript.

Lua: Error while running chunk

Added a few hours later:

More searches on the web showed me a solution out of the problem with psv:

It has been used to display rulers and grids. These are available in the Acrobat through
