Hey I'm configuring my TeXMaker 4.0.3, I did this few times and never had such a problem like that!

I have this message: Drivers other than "pdftex.def" are not supported.

PDF does not generate too.

Any suggestions?

I guess: you must me be running .tex file with [dvips] or other drivers which are not matching the compilation engine. Both should match, for eg: run latex sample and then dvips sample.dvi and finally ps2pdf sample.ps to get sample.pdf. remove any epstopdf package –  texenthusiast Aug 28 '13 at 0:01
know I have problem with save permisions... any idea where I can change thats. It is texmaker setting or windows setting? –  user35815 Aug 28 '13 at 2:55
I'm using Latex + dvips + ps2pdf + PDF, still the same problem. Here is mz preambuleŁ –  user35815 Aug 28 '13 at 2:57
italic and bold text, inline code in backticks, and basic links –  user35815 Aug 28 '13 at 3:03
For save permisions error: please update to current TeXmaker version 4.0.3 and see more Impossible to save LaTeX file in Texmaker on Windows. Please make your MWE code compilable, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. then it will be easy to resolve the issue. Use some simple examples at andy-roberts.net to compile and see the results. –  texenthusiast Aug 28 '13 at 3:43
