I am using WinEdt + MkTex systems.

After generating ps file, I use the "ps->pdf" icon in the toolbar to
generate the pdf file. However, I got the error information "error
starting ps2pdf!" message.

Can you pls give some comments on how to fix this problem? Thank you
very much.


First try it in a Command Prompt window (if you are using something
earlier than WinXP it's a DOS box):

type in

cd c:\directory\subdirectory...

to get into the right place. Then

dvips filename (no extension needed)

when that runs type

ps2pdf filename.ps ( .ps extension needed!!)

and look at the *.pdf file . If it's ok your problem is in WinEdt
and you should address queries to the author. If it's not ok you
have problems with paths, most likely.
