    Hi,

    I'm using 32bit Miktex 2.9 and 32 bit TekMaker on a Windows 7 64bit machine.
    Compiling my document using F2 (latex) and F11 (bibtex) works fine, however,
    when I'm converting dvi to pdf (F9) and error occurs:

    'mgs.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
    program or batch file.

    I checked the Path environment variable and it contains the path of the bin of
    Miktex. Any ideas why?

    Thank you very much! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Well and did you check if the bin-folder of miktex contains a mgs.exe?
    (mgs.exe is the ghostscript of miktex. It is in the package miktex-
    ghostscript-bin-2.9).
