General remark: YAP is part of MiKTeX, and there is a mailing list for 
MiKTeX users,
where you may find people who know more about YAP than here:


Another remark at the occasion: last June the printing range bug of YAP
from MiKTeX 2.5 and 2.6 was dealt with here. I have installed MiKTeX 2.7 
where the printing range bug is fixed. You might consider just updating
