Are you saying that w32-regdat.el's method of finding Ghostscript is
how other programs, like GSView, find it?  This is so ridiculously
complicated that it's simpler to tell the users "add the GS directory
to your PATH".

Note that the node "MS-DOS Printing" (which deals with Windows as well
as DOS problems) already advises to use a full absolute file name of
the Ghostscript executable in setting up ps-lpr-command.  Is this the
only place where a user would need to know the Ghostscript
installation directory?

But we shouldn't need to launch GSview, should we?
