problem with YAP

Postby M.A » Sat Nov 14, 2009 6:40 pm

Hello,

I compiled my document using latex, and I wanted to see the result in Yap, it gave me the following error message:
Message: The page could not be rendered.
Data: Unrecoverable error: rangecheck in .putdeviceprops

The strange thing is that I converted the dvi file to ps using dvi2ps and I viewed it normally using gsview.

I am using MikTeX 2.8 and Yap was working normally till today!

An ideas of the problem ?

Regards,

I think the file is corrupted for some reason.
Does anybody knows where to download yap.exe only (for miktex 2.8)?

Attach the file to your next post. You may need to put it into a ZIP or RAR archive.

My yap.exe file is attached:
yap.rar
(108.77 KiB) Downloaded 620 times


It is giving that error after running latex on the following tex file:
  1. \documentclass[12pt,letter]{article}
  2.  
  3. \usepackage{amssymb,amsmath,fullpage,graphicx,pstricks,sectsty,subfigure}
  4. \usepackage[comma,numbers]{natbib}%round,
  5.  
  6. \begin{document}
  7. Hello!
  8. \end{document}



Thanks,

Actually I meant the concerned DVI file. Perhaps this one is corrupted.

Here it is:
test.rar
(378 Bytes) Downloaded 228 times

when I run dvi2ps on it, the ps file is correct and normal.

Start the MiKTeX Package Manager, search for the Yap binaries (miktex-yap-bin-2.8), de-install and then re-install them.
