If you look in the log you will see that you do not have Ghostscript
properly installed. It looks like your configuration specifies the
Ghostscript command as "C:\Program Files\gs\gs8.53\bin\gsw32c" but that
command does not exist. Do you have Ghostscript? Where is it? If it is in
the PATH (recommended, but not likely seeing your PATH) then you should
replace the configuration command with "gswin32c".

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
