windviMS-Windows DVI driver.
There are many previewers for dvi files under MS-Windows. The most popular is probably Dviwin. However it lacks some important features such as the ability to recursively search directories for font files, the ability to use .vf files or display PostScript fonts, and the ability to display PostScript images. Unfortunately, the Dviwin sources were never put into the public domain; on the other side of the fence, Xdvi under Unix has these features, is widely used and its sources are available. Xdvi(k) uses the kpathsea library to search directories, already used in the Web2c-win32 port of TeX, so there was some interest in porting Xdvi(k) to Win32. As it turned out, this turned into far more than just a port, as X Windows is far from Win32. All the user interface and the graphical part has been rewritten.
