Encapsulated PostScript image Message

Error starting Ghostscript. Make sure that Ghostscript is installed and - if necessary - use the environment variable GS_PROG to tell GIMP about its location.
(Failed to execute child process (No such file or directory))

GIMP Message

Could not interpret Postscript file 'C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\5539135_xxl.eps

Forums: 

Because you need to install Ghostscript; it's an external program that now happens to be Open Source. :)

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostscript/

I have downloaed the application. I still get the error.

Is there something i ned to do with Ghostscript app?

If so any idea what.

PC's right; forgot to add that you need to add an Environmental variable so that GIMP will know where Ghostscript is located at. Sorry about that (it's one of those things that as soon as you set it up, you forget about it; lol). :)
