Hi I did as you suggested and I can see that executable is set to this 
which I assume is correct?
C:/Program Files (x86)/gs/gs8.60/bin/gswin32c.exe
I am using Gimp 2 to save the .eps files and I have saved several 
different ones. How can I tell if there is something wrong with them? I 
would appreciate any further help. Thanks!
