.eps files and Ghostscript: Ghostscript is not found

Postby Hans L » Fri Jul 15, 2016 11:37 pm

When I double-click on an .eps file, I get this error message:

"Ghostscript is not found on your system, please download it on http://www.ghostscript.com.

Thing is, I have Ghostscript installed on my system.


This is what I have in the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.eps

OpenWithList

Value Name/Value Data

a/uedit64.exe (UltraEdit)
b/xnview.exe (Xnview)
c/dopus.exe (Dopus)
MRUList/bca


UserChoice

Value Name/Value Data

ProgID/Xnview.Image

----------------------------------------

What might be wrong?

Thanks/Hans L

Which version of Ghostscript is installed on your system, Hans L?

You can install both Ghostscript x32 and x64 if you wish.

I have gs 9.19 installed (2016-03-23).

Should I uninstall and reinstall? I'll check if there is a later version, but i do not think so). Edit: GNU Affero General Public License, 64-bit

Xnview was installed after gs.

Please try installing the 32-bit version of Ghostscript v9.19 in addition to the already installed 64-bit version.

That was it. Solved. GS 32-bit is what Xnview wants ... and got :-)

Thanks you!
