A: GS problem

Post by szaki6 » Wed Aug 30, 2006 7:49 am

I cant see pdf, eps files but PDFCreator (and GS by creator) installed. GS path: Program Files\PDFCreator\gs8.53
XnView msg:
"AFPL Ghostscript is not found on your system"
Is this a bug or problem?

PDFs work for me. The link below provides registry information which XNView needs to locate GS (though it might be easier just to reinstall GS).

Looks like a general problem. Moved to "Bugs".

Try installing the new version 8.54.

It seems that this problem ("GS can't be found" when trying to open PDF files) still exists with the latest GS version 8.54 from a new PDFCreator v0.9.3 which I installed today. I use the latest XnView v1.90.3 on a Windows 98 SE system, and the Ghostscript installation directory is correctly listed in the registry.

Is it AFPL ghostscript?

Yes, it comes with an AFPL license.txt. Although here is the key entry for "GhostscriptCopyright" from my registry saying "GPL":

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{0001B4FD-9EA3-4D90-A79E-FD14BA3AB01D}:
GhostscriptCopyright "GPL"

Another key entry shows the path to the GS binaries on my HDD:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PDFCreator\Ghostscript:
"C:\Programme\PDFCreator\GS8.54\gs8.54\Bin"

Ok, the problem is 'PdfCreator', i'll fix it
