That's a nice thought, but if the user can set the path where gs is
installed, maybe the smart thing is to search for any instances of
gswin*.exe and then let them pick the one they want.
On my laptop, gs is installed in
so the gs version information is embedded in the gs9.04 bit of the path.
I don't recall if that is the default behaviour or one of my foibles,
but if you have to cope with all possible gs versions in the "c:\program
files" and "c:\program files (x86)" directories, and still have to cope
with some users installing things outside of those directories (for
example when their c: drives get full), working from a list of paths may
Presumably the path list might also need updating each time a new gs
version comes out.
