I had MiKTeX, with TeXworks and Texmaker running fine on my Windows 7 machine, except the package manager crashed whenever I opened it. So I decided to uninstall and reinstall everything LaTeX on my computer.
Now, after reinstalling MiKTeX and Texmaker, the TeXworks that comes with MiKTeX works fine, however Texmaker keeps saying:
The memory dump file could not be found. pdflatex: Data: pdflatex.fmt
I have also installed Lyx and LEd, and they bring up similar errors.
What I've tried:
- Rebooting my computer a few times
- Uninstalling and reinstalling MiKTeX and Texworks a few times
initexmf --dumpinto Windows' command prompt
- Going into MiKTeX's settings and updating the formats
Those are all what I'd seen suggested on this forum and others, but they don;t work for me. It seems weird that MiKTeX's own TeXworks works, whilst all other editors don't. I guess it's not the end of the world - I can still write LaTeX documents, it's just that other editors offer many more features that I've come to really like.
Thanks for any help anybody gives me, I really appreciate it!
P.S. If it helps at all, MiKTeX is installed in my "Program Files" folder, whereas the other editors are installed in my "Program Files (x86)" folder, which I just noticed. Could that be a problem? Note: Just re-installed LEd into the "Program Files" folder instead, didn't help.
