Hi,

I am using PB12.5.1 Build 4595. We are using ghostscript
8.60 for saving report into pdf format. However it caused
error(not saved, no pdf generated) when running on window 7.
We tried ghostscript 8.7 and it work fine.Does that mean,
ghostscript 8.60 cannot used on Window 7?

Hi Jackie;

Correct .. GS 8.7.x fixed some font issues for W7 - especially on the
64 bit version.

Hi Chris,

But i saw sybase product compatibility page, it said only
Ghostscript 8.60 is tested on PB12.5.1. See this link,
(http://infocenter.sybase.com/help/index.jsp?docset=/com.sybase.infocenter.help.pb.12.5.1/doc/html/title.html&docSetID=1833)
So, will that be okay if i used Ghostscript 8.71??

THanks.

OMG .. Sybase is so OTL! Sounds like that part of the documentation was
never updated or Sybase never tested it after that (I would believe the
latter)! LOL

FWIW: I use GS 9.06 currently on my XP and W7 PC's

I'm in the middle of setting up a new pc with Windows 7 64bit. I installed
the latest 9.07 (32bit) and it works perfectly fine.

You can download from here:

http://www.ghostscript.com/download/gsdnld.html

I have a free code example that automates creation of the Sybase DataWindow
PS printer. The program prompts you to select an .inf file which can be
found in:

C:\Program Files (x86)\gs\gs9.07\lib
