I'm trying to get a minimal XeLaTeX document to compile in Windows 7 with MiKTeX 2.9. I have updated all of my installed MikTeX packages and am still getting many errors during compilation.


\setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Adobe Garamond Pro}






I get a working document after hitting return through a lot of errors, but it has some debugging comments at the beginning of the pdf. See below:


Here are the first errors of the log file:

LaTeX Info: Redefining \itshape on input line 1893.
LaTeX Info: Redefining \slshape on input line 1897.
LaTeX Info: Redefining \scshape on input line 1901.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

The complete logfile can be found here: template.log

I get the same results using any number of installed system fonts. I'd like to get the document to compile correctly without errors and to leave out the extra information at the beginning of the resultant pdf.

Update your system. – Ulrike Fischer Apr 7 '13 at 19:02
Your fontspec (you: 2012/05/06 v2.2b – me: 2013/03/16 v2.3a) and xetex.def (you: 2009/11/22 v0.94 – me: 2013/02/04 v0.95) are older than mine, while your xparse (you: 2013/03/12 v4467 – me: 2012/11/21 v4332) is more recent. Strange. One way or the other, a xetex.def from 2009 doesn’t sound good. – doncherry Apr 7 '13 at 19:10
Never mind the xparse, that was just a quirk of my system. Now I’m at v4467 as well and the picture is clear: Your system is indeed not up to date and you should update. See How do I update my TeX distribution?. – doncherry Apr 7 '13 at 19:17
