The following document works fine with YAP if I put it and the image in the german equivalent of "my documents" ("Eigene Dateien"). \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \begin{document} \includegraphics[width=5cm]{testeps} \end{document} testeps.eps is a copy of tiger.eps which you can find on CTAN. So if you want a better solution: Make a *complete* description of your problem, including a minimal example and a list of all pathes involved. http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html -- Mit freundlichen Grüßen Ulrike Fischer mailto:list@...

Here is a complete minimal example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \begin{document} \includegraphics{tiger.eps} \end{document} When I open the resulting dvi I get the following error: MiKTeX Problem Report Message: The page could not be rendered.

I didn't test rigorously to determine whether Brian's conjectured "if and only if" condition (iff under My Documents) is true, but it fails in one folder under My Docs and works in one folder not under My Docs. I encountered this error a few weeks ago when I re-installed MikTeX, upgrading to the new version. It also appears that my old .dvi files open OK, but when I re-compile an old .tex file, the new .dvi file generates this error.

I tried your example but can not reproduce the error. The dvi opens fine no matter if it is under "Eigene Dateien" or not. Where exactly is tiger.eps? The main difference between my miktex setup and yours is that I'm not admin but power user, and I don't have a shared setup (and I'm on a german Windows). Do you have an external ghostscript/gsview installed? What happens on the route latex-> dvips -> gsview? What happens if you disable source specials? -- Mit freundlichen Grüßen Ulrike Fischer mailto:list@...

 Re: [MiKTeX] MiKTeX 2.7 problem with Yap on Windows XP From: Stefan Krämer - 2009-02-11 22:30 This is a problem of absolut path lengths, which is the reason why it occurs under "My Documents" (its parent folder being "Documents and Settings"). Other programs also have this problem, maybe the old 255 characters limit is still in place. Cut the names of your folder and files a bit shorter and you'll be fine.
