That's good progress.

Does it help to use "C:/PROGRA~!" instead of "C:/Program Files"?  (It
avoids spaces in file names, which could cause failures in subtle and
"interesting" ways.)

If that doesn't work, the only other idea I have is to install a
32-bit build of Ghostscript, perhaps there's some problem with
invoking a 64-bit one from within a 32-bit Emacs.
