I am trying to use subequations in a document. Playing around with my preamble I found out that if I use babel and hyperref package at the same time, a fatal error is occured and no .pdf is produced.

I know I can play around with the equation counter, to make an enumeration 1.1a, 1.1b, but I was wondering why is this happening with subequations and if there's a way to fix this.

My code is


    %pdfborder = {0 0 0},

\chapter{Chapter one}

I don’t get any errors with your code on MiKTeX 2.9. I’m assuming your system is up-to-date? – doncherry Jun 27 '13 at 14:00
The posted code runs without error in TeXlive 2013 – David Carlisle Jun 27 '13 at 14:01
Thank you very much for your comments. I am running MikTex 2.8. Do you think that this might be the problem? Have you ever heard of something similar in MikTeX 2.8? – Thanos Jun 27 '13 at 14:07
No, but MiKTeX 2.8 is not maintained anymore and probably some of the old packages you have cause the issue. – karlkoeller Jun 27 '13 at 14:19
@karlkoeller: So the solution is to update to MikTex 2.9? – Thanos Jun 27 '13 at 14:32
