That is great!  What I'd like to know is why

these settings are necessary.  If you call lilypond from
this batch file, instead of gs, does lilypond generate PDFs too?

How it works on XP, and what lilypond does, is set these variables
before calling GS.  You might be able to see what lilypond sets these
to, by doing


To test this, do not set GS_LIB or GS_FONTPATH.  The output may go
into the nul$ file.  I would expect lilypond to set just these
variables, but using the full, expanded name.

Just maybe there is a problem with directories with spaces in them.
It would also be nice to know if you can somehow manage to get your
batch solution to work using full names

  set lily="c:\program files\lilypond\usr"
  set GS_LIB=%lily%\share\gs\lib
I've got no idea where/how to use double quotes...
