Install GNU Ghostscript GS on Windows XP

  1. Jul 2, 2008 #1
    Hi All:

    I am trying to install Ghostscript to read a .ps FILE. Unfortunately, after downloading and unzipping
    GPL Ghostscript 8.62

    It does not self-extract, and I cannot find the .exe to setup the software on my computer. Does anyone know how to install GPL Ghostscript after unzipping?

    Thanks!

    If there is no .exe probably you don't have the Windows version.

    Do you have some LaTeX distribution installed (e.g. MikTeX?)
    Because then you can just run the .ps file through (e)ps2pdf and open it as PDF.
