[texpoint-users] Configuring Texpoint

I can't seem to get TexPoint configured properly. The problem seems to be
with tex2bmp, but I don't know. I tried using the internal tex2bmp, and not
using it. Either way I am getting the following error:



Tex2bmp: Shell command failed for <ghostscript> execution


Any suggestions? 

Thanks, chris
