Thanks for your info. I got the error from epstopdf. All stuff (TL, gs, perl) are installed under C:\Program Files.> Date: Mon, 18 Jun 2007 14:13:19 -0300> From: gnwiii at gmail.com> To: lianqing.yu at hotmail.com> Subject: Re: [tex-live] TL2007 epstopdf: Script interpreter is not found in PATH> CC: tex-live at tug.org> > On 6/17/07, Lianqing Yu <lianqing.yu at hotmail.com> wrote:> > > I uninstall TL first and reinstall it again with perl and ghostscript> > installed.
