- Ghost script and Ghost view: Download the latest versions.
- Sumatra PDF reader Download the latest version.
- A Tex editor such as TeXnicCenter or TeXstudio. The first time you start TeXnicCenter you will need to configure it.
Once you have installed all necessary applications, you will use the Tex editor to edit your LaTeX document, and then you will be able to build and output it to any combination of dvi, ps, and pdf files.
