From a strictly PostScript standpoint, the only part of this code you should need is the call to setpagedevice:

     << /PageSize [ 595 842 ] >> setpagedevice

Note this should precede any PostScript that draws on the page.

Are you writing your own PostScript or modifying existing code (driver output or some such)?

Well, setpagedevice refers to the current device (which is a display device by default), and your call of the

setdevice operator, which makes the selected mswinpr2 the current device, is executed afterwards.

Exchange these lines:

<</PageSize[595 842]>>setpagedevice

setdevice
