Hi guys,

I'm running TeXLive 7 on Windows XP. Almost everything has been perfect,
but I have some problems.

1. I can't get epstopdf to work. First of all, it couldn't find gswin32c,
but I just added C:\gs\gs7.05\bin to my path. But I still get the
following error:

D:\Writing\Math\Astronomy>epstopdf kepler.eps
Error: /undefined in MM
Operand stack:

GNU Ghostscript 7.05: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

2. I'm having problems with divpdfm. I get a message:

Warning:  Couldn't open font map file cm-super-x1.map

This doesn't seem to be critial. But when I try to put it as a User
Tool in WinShell using the option %s.dvi, I get an error:

There is no Main-TeX document

Is %s.dvi correct? I"m unsure about %s, %p and %c.

3. I tried to install the setspace package twice, but somehow it failed to
copy setspace.sty over. In the end I had to copy it manually. Is this a

Thanks in advance!
