U2 has everything!

Looking a gift horse in the mouse, I find that when I try xy2pdf I get "SX command requires a number. <<is99>>"
My REGEDIT stanza is:


The stanza heading had an "a" in it:

I took it out, but still no dice.

I checked the paths by copying them to the commandline (ctrl-alt-shift-C in Xy4.kbd) and they had gswin32c.exe and gsview32.exe respectively.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Or use U2 command XY2PDF<Helpkey>. POSTGHST.PRN must be the loaded
printer file, and a PostScript interpreter and viewer, such as
Ghostscript and GSView, must be installed. User variables under XyWWWeb
REGistry Key [Ghostscript] must point to Ghostscript and GSView
EXEcutables (or their equivalents). Issue REGEDIT Ghostscript<Helpkey>
to edit the REG file.
