Dear All,

I encountered a Problem when trying to use a new Version of the
pstricks-add package.

I downloaded all the newest pstricks and pstricks-related packages from
ctan, including

color.cfg, dvips.def, keyval.tex, minimal.cls, missfont.log,
multido.sty, multido.tex, pst-3d.sty, pst-3d.tex, pst-fp.tex,
pst-math.pro, pst-math.sty, pst-math.tex, pst-node.tex,
pst-plot.tex, pst-xkey.sty, pst-xkey.tex, pstricks-add.sty,
pstricks-add.tex, pstricks.con, pstricks.sty, pstricks.tex, xcolor.sty,
xkeyval.sty, xkeyval.tex

(in fact I needed to decompress pst-3d first) and put them in one folder
together with the following tex-file





But when I try to run latex over this file I get

Am I doing something wrong? When searching on the internet (and in the
archives of this list) I found similar errors. But the problem was
always an outdated installation of another package (either pstricks or
xkeyval). Now after putting all these files directly from ctan into the
folder I think this can't be the problem, can it?

Thanks for your help in advance.
