    How do I make it so I can read postscript files? I'm on windows XP, what do I download or do or say? :frown:

    Good question. I wish I knew. I keep getting pointed to a place where you can download "Ghostview" but its a pain in the ass and I could never get it to work.

    Try going to www.download.com and searching for some software for it.

    Yup.. you want ghostview. Note that ghostview depends on ghostscript. It really isn't that much of a pain in the ass, guys.

    I've always used Adobe Distiller to convert postscripts into acrobat files.
