Hi Tanneke,

It seems that your error:

(good thing you included it verbatim), is caused by a mismatch between
ghostview (the GUI) and ghostscript (the actual Postscript

There are two workarounds listed here:

You could also try to uninstall the ghostview/ghostscript you
downloaded separately, and instead rerun LilyPond's setup.exe

and select packages 'gs' and 'gzview'.  These should have been
selected automatically, if not, that's a bug of setup.exe.

Thanks!  Oh, and you're writing to a mixture of both; this is a
mailing list for lilypond users.  A lot of people can read this mail;
I'm one of the developers.  You chose the correct email address to ask
for help.

I'd like to keep this on this mailing list (and thus in English if
that's ok), until your problem has been resolved; it may help others.
