Problem with PSTricks using MikTex 2.9

 I am trying without success to draw a diagram using the latex package PSTricks.  A minimal version of the the command sequence that I am using is: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pstricks} \begin{document} \begin{pspicture}(-1,-1)(5,2) \psline(0,0)(4,0) \psline(2,0)(2,1) \end{pspicture} \end{document} When I try to compile these commands using latex  in MikTex 2.9 (under WinEit 6), I get the message:         "MikTex Problem Report.  Some PostScript specials could not be rendered." Exactly the same commands compile without any problem using PCTex 6 instead of MikTex 2.9 (but unfortunately PCTex 6 will not work for my whole project). I have uninstalled and then reinstalled MikTex (under Windows 10) but this doesn't help. I really need to draw a lot of similar pictures  in an article, and I have hit a wall here.  Any suggestions about how to avoid this PSTricks problem using Miktex will be greatly appreciated!

 Are you compiling to dvi or pdf?

Re: Problem with PSTricks using MikTex 2.9

 In reply to this post by Ulrike Fischer-2 Ulrike, Thanks for the reply and suggestion. The message came from Yap. I was originally trying to compile to dvi, just to make the process work.  After changing the Yap rendering method to Dvips as you suggested, I finally succeeded in getting a dvi file. However, I still need to obtain a pdf file, and nothing I have tried has worked in WinEdt/MikTex (e.g. pdflatex or dvi2pdf). Any suggestions are welcome.

So you need to run latex dvips ps2pdf All three tools have menu entries in winedt. The alternative is xelatex. Or you drop pstricks and use tikz instead, then you can compile with pdflatex directly: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \draw(0,0)--(4,0); \draw(2,0)--(2,1); \end{tikzpicture} \end{document} -- Ulrike Fischer http://www.troubleshooting-tex.de/------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Developer Access Program for Intel Xeon Phi Processors Access to Intel Xeon Phi processor-based developer platforms.
