Hi,
I cannot use xetex and pstricks on miktex 2.8 with texworks as well as
in TL2009 on macbookpro.

I got:
! I can't find file `xdvipdfmx.cfg'.
l.6 \input xdvipdfmx.cfg

I suppose it is missing in MiKTeX and TeXLive, too. You can get it
from CTAN
http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pstricks/base/config/xdvipdfmx.cfg

save it in the directory of "kpsewhich pstricks.con" and
update the filename data base

I already made a miktex bug report about the missing file some days
ago.

But I wondered a bit: Why did you choose the extension .cfg, why not
xdvipdfmx.con? cfg is an extension used by a lot of packages and
binaries for configurations.
