Can't Compile a document

Jeff's picture

I'm trying to compile a document with a figure and every time I try and do so the program crashes. I've identified that figures are the problem, because without them it complies fine. I can preview the file, I just can't compile. Since the machine just crashes I don't know how to begin troubleshooting the problem. Can somone help me out?

Your problem description

Your problem description isn't complete enough to give an accurate answer.  However, my guess is that you can compile for DVI without any errors, but SW crashes when you compile the same document for PDF.  If that's the case, then my previous post at should be helpful.
