Yet Another Previewer has stopped working

Postby dasci+ » Sun Dec 24, 2017 3:29 pm

Hello,

When I compile a file and view the dvi file, I receive the following message:

"Yet Another Previewer has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a
solution is available."

Then it stops working. But it does not happen in every file. BTW, I am using Windows 10. Any help is appreciated,

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum!

Perhaps there's an update available for YAP, or for your MiKTeX or TeX Live? I would check this first. There may be bug fixes.

YAP is for DVI and is partially capable of displaying embedded PostScript graphics (EPS). Non-supported PostScript could crash it. Perhaps check if it's caused by EPS images or by using PSTricks.

Thanks Stefan.

Indeed I found out that it is caused by .eps files. However, I used to run these files on Miktex 2.8 without a problem. The problem started when I installed 2.9.

Both the YAP and the Miktex are the latest versions. Any other possibilities?

Thanks again.
