Thanks for the help so far.

I changed the location of Ghostscript to C:\Ghostscript\gs905\32bit  and tried


for the path, but no luck.

In other apps, if I select PDF as the printer, I'm prompted to save
the file as a .pdf and then Adobe Acrobat converts the file to PDF
form, saves it,  and it is opened in Adobe Acrobat.  While it is doing
the creating there is a progress bar.

When trying to ps-print-buffer from emacs, if I select PDF from the
printer list, it asks where I want to save the pdf file.  Then the
progress dialog shows up, shows a little progress then just stops.

In all cases, in *Messages* "Printing..." is written, then immediately
"Done" is appended.   Emacs seems to think the print job has finished
before it really has time to do anything.

It is as if emacs is calling gswin32c.exe or gswin64c.exe  but after
starting to communicate with the printer (driver) it kills off the
child process that gswin32.c is running in.   It is definitely getting
something started because the PDF converter and the HP printer utility
are indicating that they have been stimulated.

Is there perhaps some temporary working directory I need to specify
for ghostscript?
Do I need to change the way emacs starts a sub-process?
