PDF is not generated (LaTeX=>PS=>PDF) in TeXnicCenter

(often occurring problem with TUD-installation)

When using the build mode ‘Latex=>PS=>PDF’ and there is no PDF generated, but there is a .DVI-file and a .PS-file generated, TeXnicCenter is not able to convert a PS-file to a PDF-file. Likely, your build-settings are wrong.

  • Go to tab BUILD, then DEFINE OUTPUT PROFILES and select the profile “LaTeX=>PS=>PDF”.
  • Go to tab POSTPROCESSOR and click “Ghostscript (ps2pdf). In the Executable line write the location of ghostscript (e.g. C:\Program Files\GS\gs8.64\bin\gswin32c.exe). [if Ghostscript is not installed, first install it :)]
