I receive a error when I want to convert a pdf

Post by Greta » Mon Jul 09, 2007 2:48 pm

I’m running the latest version of nconvert and want to convert a pdf to a ppm file. But when I run nconvert I receive the following error:

nconvert -out ppm -truecolors test.pdf
** NCONVERT v4.79 (c) 1991-2007 Pierre-E Gougelet (May 16 2007/10:27:55) **
Version for Windows NT/9x/2000/Xp/Vista (All rights reserved)
** This is a freeware software (for non commercial use)

Error: Don't know how to read this picture (test.pdf)

Can anyone tell me what I doing wrong?

I have installed GPL Ghostscript 8.56 (http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/doc/GPL/gpl856.htm) but this makes no difference. Must I do something special after install this to get it work?
