Re: [tex-live] windvi, gsftopk.exe problems with TeXLive2005
Thanks for your comments Fabrice. Perhaps there is a misunderstanding on
my part. The latex version that I have installed is the one that is
automatically installed by texlive, and I thought that was derived from
xemtex. I did not specifically install xemtex. There is nothing in the
documentaion of tex-live which refers to any incompatibility of the
windows verision of tex that is automatically installed.
Does this mean that all windows users of tex have to install ProTeX?
