[Xy-pic] pdflatex & xypic in miktex ++ defining colors

I have 2 little questions and was wondering if someone could help me out...

1) pdflatex and xypic on miktex and winedt.

I am using miktex 2.7 and winedt and wanna pdflatex my posters. Like many
other users latex, dvips, and ps2pdf is not preferred. At


I was reading some instruction on how to make that work. I did the windows
equivalent, i.e. copied all the xy*.tex files into the folder


and did


in the header of my latex file. When pdflatexing It would then complain

! Xy-pic error: No `xypdf@' option.
\xyerror@ ...#2}\fi \errmessage {Xy-pic error: #1}

Do you know what to do?

2) I was playing with those color options, wanted to define some colors


as well as


          X = \dots

Turns out that this box is filled entirely black. Another box

          X = \dots

in this file, however, becomes red as supposed to. Was then having


in the header.

Similarly, the line


I found at


was not doing any better and and after latexing it gave

Error: /undefined in TeXcolorred
Operand stack:
   --dict:1155/1684(ro)(G)--   0.7
Execution stack:
   %interp_exit   .runexec2   --nostringval--   --nostringval--
--nostringval--   2   %stopped_push   --nostringval--   --nostringval--
--nostringval--   false   1   %stopped_push   1893   1   3

and things in YAP. I'm kinda surprised this is not working as I was reading
some earlier postings for instance at


reporting positive results...

If you have an idea on how to fix it ... that'd be appreciated. Thanks,
