<span class="gmail_quote"><br></span><div>HI,<br><br><span> I installed WinEdt5 containing Miktex 2.4 in a computer. Almost everything went well, except that: <br><br>When I pressed mp <a href="http://foo.mp/" title="http://foo.mp (http://foo.mp/)" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">
foo.mp</a> it created an empty foo.1, so I could not
<br> proceed in getting the figure.<br><br> The log report said: Emergency stop<br> Endfig -> scantokens.extra_endfig: shipit:<br> endgroup
<br><br> I am not used to the options provided by WinEdt team and I could not see<br> from the Wizard how to proceed.<br><br>I had a similar problem in a different computer and I succeeded to overcome it<br>by doing two things:
<br><br>1. <br>In some configuration file, whose name I do not remember, I added<br>"assign" to GS version 8.11 (because that filed called assign GS to an earlier<br>version). <br><br>2. <br>After that I pressed some kind of update taken from somewhere in the Wizard.
<br><br>I do not know why that worked, but it did. Can you advise and tell me the name of the metapost file in which "assign" to GS is stated?<br><br>Can you tell me which "update" forces winedt to recognize meatpost?
<br><br>Let me add that in the computer that works, I can only process the metapost<br>file via the path: mp to <a href="http://foo.ps">foo.ps</a> -> TeX using epsf -> dvi to ps -> dvi to pdf.<br>Using Tex to pdf directly, or dvi 2 pdf does not work. Obviously something is wrong in my
<br>installation.<br><br><br>Thanks,<br><br> Michael Maschler<br><br> p.s.,<br> I am using Ghostscript
gs8.11 in C:\gs and Ghost view in<br> c:\Ghostgum\gsview\gvwgs32.exe, version 4.5.<br></span><br><br><br><br clear="all"><br><br>
