I can reproduce (also with 1.6.2).

When starting with LyXLauncher -dbg files, I get the attached log. And 
the images are not shown. When running lyx.exe from the command prompt, 
the output is the same up to /command and silent afterwards. Then the 
images are correctly shown on screen.

Thanks. It looks like there's a bug in the Windows installers of 
Ghostscript 8.63/8.64. I copied the new files for the installer from the 
Ghostcript directory, but apparently some of them are missing there.


I'll get the files from the Ghostscript source code instead and will

Problem with LyxLauncher

2009-06-09 Thread Robert Betz
Users/developers,
 
I have recently installed version 1.6.3 of Lyx using the standard installer.  
The installation went smoothly.  I have installed on a Windows XP machine, and 
on a Windows Vista (32 bit) machine.
 
However, I seem to have one problem. If I open my files using the standard 
double click technique the figures will not open. I get the error:
 
Error converting to loadable format.
 
The figures are EPS, and they all work with version 1.6.1 (which was the last 
version I used).  This problem did not occur in 1.6.1.
 
However, if I open lyx from a command window by using lyx.exe, and then open 
the files then the diagrams render OK.
 
I have encountered this problem on three different machines, so I am fairly 
sure that it is not a machine configuration problem.
 
So in short the work around is to change the opening association to lyx.exe and 
always get a console window.
 
Questions: 
 
Has anyone had trouble with this?
 
Is there a fix?
 
Thanks in advance for any help.
 
 
 
 
 
 


Regards


Bob Betz
