Converted EPS Image File not found

Postby steing25 » Fri Aug 30, 2013 2:13 am


Thanks for this nice LaTeX community, there are many nice threads here. I would like to ask about a weird thing that's occurring in my configuration.

In the machine, MiKTeX portable is unzipped on "C:\MiKTeX" (so it's "C:\MiKTeX\miktex\bin\"). GhostScript is not installed on the system. I'm using TexStudio 2.6.2, with settings "Build & View" (= Compile and View), and PDFLaTeX as compiler engine.

There is this simple file:
  1. \documentclass[]{article}
  2. \usepackage{graphicx}
  3. \usepackage{epstopdf}
  5. \begin{document}
  6. \includegraphics{image}
  7. \end{document}

The image file, is "image.eps" as the attached one. But, when you press the build and view button, then the console displays:
  1. Package pdftex.def Error: File `image-eps-converted-to.pdf' not found \includegraphics{image}

Note that the actual user directory contains non-english characters. Also, if you use "epstopdf.exe" with the "image.eps" file, you will get a normal PDF file as expected. Since all text and packages compile normally, do you know why the EPS files are not included in the PDF?

Thank you in advance!

If you change the Build & Preview in TexStudio to DVI->PDF, then the pdf generates, but no image is included. The console displays:

Process started: "C:\miktex\miktex\bin\latex.exe" -src -interaction=nonstopmode "new".tex

Process exited normally
