Hello T T, 

>I cc TL mailing list, since our discussion might be interesting to other users. 

OK. I do the same.

>You can get prebuild win32 binaries from : 

texworks238 works correctly but texworks303 dont work. It doesn't run. Do you no why ?

>> About ghostscript and ps2pdf : 

I understand the problem.

If the file name is for example trypdflatex.tex then ps2pdf works correctly.
If the file name is for example try pdf latex.tex then ps2pdf don't work.
If the file name contain spaces then ps2pdf don't work.
Then I use gsview to convert ps files to pdf files.

I suppose that for printing the quality of a ps file is better. Is it true ?

A good solution : latexmk by John Collins.


The command latexmk.bat -pv -ps works very well with texworks.

Sorry for my bad english.
