TeX Live 2008 clearly breaks with Winedt and TeXnicCenter at least with
respect to dviout and PS_View:

*Winedt can no longer detect TL as the Registry-Key advertising TL to
the system is no longer there.
*If a user accepts the default install dir (c:\texlive\2008) Winedt
again has no chance to find TL. The problem is the extra directory level
*In ../bin/win32 we can find every kind of 'executables', i.e.
context.cmd, psv.bat, dviout.vbs. Nothing of it is suitable for
GUI-Programs expecting *.exe files to execute.
So for now users willing to use Winedt or TeXnicCenter has to do a lot
of extra manual configuration.

For dviout to work I had to edit install.par for a correct metafont mode.
