Hi

for installing Ghostscript see here http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1228
and many other postings.

With XnView it is not possible to create DWG. The additional plugin is only to view it. If you want really to convert then you need something like this:

I'd recommend MUPDF for PDF to PNG "conversion". I don't use GS myself.
There is indeed no WinZIP under my rock.
