I'm running Win7x64 and when I planned to install Scribus 1.4.1, I 
noticed that there was a 64-bit Ghostscript, so I tried that and my 
install seems to be ok, because I can import .eps files and Print 
Preview works ok - which I believe requires Ghostscript.

My Postscript Interpreter: Name of Executable is

C:\Program Files\gs\gs9.05\bin\gswin64c.exe
