I'm having a problem with HTMLdoc and rails.

I've set it up as per and I'm using
windows and version 1.8.24.

I can make ps files without a problem and I can make pdfs using the
stand alone app, however I can't get the pdf created in RoR to work.

Loading it into gsviewer I get the error below...

Any help would be appreciated!
