Okay, guys. Here's what I want to do: convert a *.tex file to a *.dvi file, and then look at the pretty *.dvi file. That's it. But I want to do it in Windows. I've done this a gazillion times in linux, and it's easy as pie. Just "latex file.tex" in a terminal shell. But of course there's no terminal in windows. I've installed both miktex and texniccenter, and I can't make heads or tails of either one. This should be simple, and yet... Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
