If you use ghostscript portable, there is no way for xnview to know where it is :(

Hi,
Considering XnView MP 0.84 portable, and PortableApps "Gostscrip", is there any improvement to make both work together?
Or the former reply "If you use ghostscript portable, there is no way for xnview to know where it is" is still applying.
Thanks,
Carlos

I think that PortableApps Ghostscript can only be used with PortableApps Xnview, but would welcome clarification from anyone who has used it...

The problem as I understand it is that standard XnView and all other XnView software reads the environment variable created when Ghostscript is installed in Windows.
