It is certainly not true that you need Win Edit. Of course you can 
run dvips alone (I have a TeXLive standard installation on XP) and 
can run e.g. "dvips main" without any problems in a "prompt window". 
That would produce "main.ps".

Then to get a pdf version from your ps-file: Try FreePDF 
(http://freepdf-xp.en.softonic.com/). It is very easy, allows high 
resolutions (mine has 2540dpi now) and "prepress" (whatever that 
means). Also - publishers insist - it can embed all fonts (even the 
standard ones).  It handled cases where other (commercial) programs 
stopped. And it is free!

Ghostscript must be installed on your computer.
