GSview (and therefore Ghostscript) must be installed before
TeXnicCenter, so that TeXnicCenter has the chance to create the
appropriate output format. Therefore you're right that an installing
order of MiKTeX, Ghostscript GSView and at last TeXnicCenter would be
more reasonable.

I personally detected this, while the PDF-Doc was already finished and
translated. And because the profile  LaTeX=>PS=>PDF is rarely needed -
thanks to the prospects of PDFTeX - i never fixed it.
