Last reply:

uniconvertor does not support converting from postscript files; it only supports converting to postscript. That is why it fails with an "unrecognised file type", as the given input file-type is not valid.

max (maxim-s-barabash) said : #3

sK1 rev. 868. EPS Binary File Header support.
Will be in the next release Uniconvertor.
