When I try to view any pdf- or postsciptfile with psv, I get the error

For me this happens on two quite new notebooks with Win10, both have 
installed TeXLive.

Is the problem known and is there maybe a fix for it?

(In Linux I encountered problems with the new gs 9.25, with doesn't 
cooperate with my favorite viewer, the outdated gsview 4.9; so I keep an 
older gs 9.22 at these notebooks in order to be able to further use 
gsview 5.0; I cannot use the new one.)

Best wishes
