Hello all, I am using PS2PDF with Ghostscript and appending multiple images to ps and converting into pdf. I get an error when i run it, the error is :
//Problem converting Postscript, system returned error 1. "" Is not a recognized internal or external command.//
I can convert it into postscript with print option and commenting out the ps2pdf, Please help me on this one.

If you post the code you are using, an answer would not be based on guessing only.
I assume, the path of your file or executable contains a space. Then include the path in double quotes:
system('"C:\Program files\Ghost\ps2pdf" "C:\Folder with spaces\"')
(Of course this is an example only, adjust it to the real names.)

@Sudhanshu Nahata: Now please explain, which code you use for ps2pdf. This function is not contained in my Matlab 2016b.

@Jan Simon: If you know of any other code which can do the job, I will be happy to use that one. I tried "export_fig" , but it takes a lot of time to print pdf file and the rendering has lot of issues.

Hi Walter, thanks for the link. I did review it. I think he issue is still unresolved even after installing ghostscript. The error that I posted is after I install ghostscript and run "ps2pdf". My guess is the way I am installing ghostscript is not correct (directory issue) or there is something that needs to be tweaked in the "ps2pdf" script. I tried few options myself but none helped. I am using 2016b.
