I need latex as engine because it can typeset .eps graph files. The eps graphs have much
better resolution than pdf graphs. Do you think any other way to typeset the file
embedded with eps graphs? Thanks.

Note that it can generate a valid .ps file, but fails to generate a .pdf file.
I’m no expert in these things, so take it with a grain of salt, but is there a reason you
want to use “latex” as engine?
I believe most people moved to “pdflatex” because it generates the pdf directly, which can
then be opened by Preview and many other apps.
The (older/raw) “latex” engine is for generating a .dvi file which is sort of a bitmap
representation from which a .ps can be generated, but .ps files can’t easily be shown on
OS X (and that is likely why you get the viewer error) and they look like crap if
converted to .pdf (at least back when I used latex).
