Hi there,
does anybody have a clue where I did go wrong then? Actually I like that 
kind of package much, since I wont have to write batches or other 
scripts anymore.
I use:
  - WinXP
  - TL2008 (Lehmann DVD + DTK-update)
  - TeXmaker/Console.
Log: says option enable, (La)TeX says: nope.


This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.1415926-1.40.9 (Web2C 7.5.7) (format=pdflatex 
2008.12.9)  14 DEC 2008 11:29
entering extended mode
\write18 enabled.
  %&-line parsing enabled.
File: pstricks.tex 2008/07/31 v1.26 `PSTricks' (tvz)

! Package auto-pst-pdf Error:
     "shell escape" (or "write18") is not enabled:
     auto-pst-pdf will not work!

See the auto-pst-pdf package documentation for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.114         Or turn off auto-pst-pdf.}
