    Default ghostscript install question

    when i try to view a PDF on infranview i get the decode error "can't load ghostscript of ghostscript error" I go to "http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostscript/" like the error tells me to do and download the file "ghostscript-9.04.tar.bz2"

    but then what do i do where do i install it i looked at other threds and they talk about .exe files and installing it silently in windows but nothing about where to put it in infranview.

    please explain I have a windows 7 64 bit laptop if that maters

    Hi wastewater,

    That's why you must use also a 32bit version of Ghostscript!
    (Take GPL Ghostscript → "gsxxxw32.exe"!)

    Hi,

    you need the install file for windows:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghos...2.exe/download

    .tar.bz2 files are usually for Unix based systems.

    Regards
    Nils
