It was quite straight forward to import an .eps file (also pdf and other formats) into a script, with the version 10.0. that I had before; but, since I upgraded my Mathematica to the latest version 10.4.1, it fails and the following message appears:
"Unable to communicate with closed link \ !(LinkObject[\"'/Applications/Mathematica.app/Contents/SystemFiles/Converters/Binaries/MacOSX-x86-64/PDF.exe'\", 165, 4]). "
The command is simply:
graphPMF03 = Import["Desktop/myfile.eps"];
