I've tried to upgrade pstricks-add from 2.18 to 2.73.  Unfortunately,
the new style seem not to work.

Here is a test file (test.tex)


    \psset{xAxisLabel=$x/w$, yAxisLabel=$\Delta E/E_d$, Dx=1, Dy=0.5}
      \psplot[algebraic=true, linewidth=2pt]{0.0000}{3.5}{-EXP(-x)}


I latex'ed it and got the following file list:

 *File List*
 article.cls    2004/02/16 v1.4f Standard LaTeX document class
  size10.clo    2004/02/16 v1.4f Standard LaTeX file (size option)

 xkeyval.tex    2005/11/25 v2.5e key=value parser (HA)

Then I dvips'ed it:

dvips  -o test.ps test.dvi

but whenever I try to see it, I get:

Here is the pstricks.pro used:

%%BeginProcSet: pstricks.pro
% PostScript prologue for pstricks.tex.
% Version 1.00, 2005/09/18
% For distribution, see pstricks.tex.

Note that there is no problem with the old 2.18 version of pstricks-add.

Good luck
