When i run this on texmaker. It gives the error arabxetex.sty not found. I dont know how to run xetex or xelatex on texmaker. I have tried a few things like changing latex to xelatex in configuration of texmaker but it didn't do any good. So if anyone can tell me about how to use xetex on texmaker do tell me.

i installed Miketex again with the instructions given here theseekersquill.wordpress.com/2010/03/07/… Done this step too in texmaker Options -----> Configure Texmkaer -----> Quick build and then chose this option xelatex + pdf but this error occurs !
