Rendering problem in choosing LaTeX in MikTex 2.9 in 64 bit Windows 7

    I have been using MiKTeX for years. I am trying to compile a file (book with eps pictures some of which used epsf.def file) that originated from Mac. It compiled fine before on PC using MikTeX (different version) but would not compile now and gives the error below. Please note that in WinEdt 6, instead of choosing LaTeX, if I do dvi2pdf, the pdf file is produced correctly without any error. It is a 400 page document and I cannot produce pdf every time I recompile.

    I am using MiKTex Revision 2.9.4282
    Windows 7 64 bit
    WinEdt 6
    I had done standard installation as I am not familiar with all the switches.

    I would really appreciate some help.

    Thanks a lot,
