Converting PDF Files

Installing GhostScript

Installing GhostScript is easy:

  1. Run gs853w32.exe.
  2. Click Setup.
  3. Choose installation options, and click Install.

Installing GSView

GSView is a graphical front-end to the GhostScript application (which in itself runs from a command line and is hard to use). It's slightly more complicated to install than GhostScript, but is wizard-based.

  1. Run gsv48w32.exe.
  2. Click Setup.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Click Next again.
  5. Choose file associations (I recommend yes to PostScript and EPS, but no to PDF), and click Next.
  6. Choose the folder you want GSView to be installed to, and click Next.
  7. Choose extra installation options, and click Finish.
