I managed to solve three of my problems on my own.
My auto-pst-pdf just required refreshing the MiKTeX FNDB! Stupid me. :(
The pdftricks problem was a bit harder, but I found a link on http://pages.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/~pneumann/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=MyUniversity.PdfTricks to a modification by Shujun LI and that solved the problem.
ps2pdf -dAutoRotatePages=/None <file-pics.ps> <file-pics.pdf> still does not work. If I do not include the output file name I get a message about Unrecoverable error: typecheck in .putdeviceprops. But then I removed the -d option, and
ps2pdf <file-pics.ps> worked like a dream.
I'm still looking for a pdf2eps script for MiKTeX, but I will try the Linux one under Cygwin later.

Subject: PSTricks and PDF
I'm trying to set up PSTricks using MiKTeX 2.8 on Windows 7. I have studied the page
and have tried four ways of PDF export, but have had trouble with all four of them.
Ps2pdf: Creating the pdf file was easy, but the link to the pdf2eps script was bad. I found another shell script online, but is there a simple way to do this with MiKTeX? Or should I install Cygwin?
Pst-pdf: ps2pdf -dAutoRotatePages=/None <file-pics.ps> <file-pics.pdf> did not work for me. A GhostScript window came up, but no file was created.
Auto-pst-pdf: I got a long log file. The first error simply says "Creation of test-auto-pst-pdf-pics.pdf failed."
Pdftricks: I got an error saying
(pdftricks) No \write 18 capability.
(pdftricks) You'll have to run a script by yourself!
I executed pdflatex --enable-write18, but maybe some internal calls did not enable write 18.
Thanks in advance!
