In Windows O/S, I usually write a short aaa.bat file, and add it to the command list. It always takes me from .tex & .bib to .dvi & .ps & .pdf and view it in a viewer in one step.
(Make sure your tex code without any error.)
But it takes longer time. Acrobat will lock a file after it opens the file.

In a similar way, when I write slides using HA-prosper, I view the results in ps format instead of dvi.

I worked out the .bat file idea myself and have nearly got it. For example here is my .bat to process prosper files:

latex %1
dvips -o %1.dvi
ps2pdf12.bat %1.pdf
AcroRd32 %1.pdf

which works fine except for the last line. I can't get acroread to fire up. Maybe it is to do with the locking that you mention. If I can get over that I will be very happy.

My general aim is to be able to use XEmacs on Windows as well as Unix (my preferred system). Currently on Unix I either use a Makefile or shell programs akin to the .bat above. This discussion has been very helpful because I can see now how I can do all my processing on Unix from XEmacs as well.
