I've not had any particular issues with TeXnicCenter until recently. This past week it has been reporting an error in all compiled documents. The error is from the first line of the output, which makes no sense, and doesn't impede output, meaning I get my PDF without issue. There is also no mention of any error in the .log file.
Of course, there might be fire somewhere, given the smoke, and it really annoys me to see "1 error(s)" at the bottom when there's nothing wrong. It also means I can't turn on "stop execution if there is an error".
Some possible causes:
- I recently installed BitDefender.
- I recently uninstalled NuancePDF reader (it had come on the computer, and worked "fine" until shortly after the new year, when it started crashing after loading any document. I simply replaced it with Foxit).
I don't know if installing BitDefender is what broke Nuance or not. I have changed my build profile to use Foxit (once I realized that setting was in the build profile). As far as I know, there was only one place to change that, and I only needed to change the program itself, not the commandline args.
If anyone can shed some light on why this is occurring I'd greatly appreciate it. It doesn't prevent me working, but it frustrates me and concerns me, as there may be an underlying issue somewhere.
