Forward/Inverse search in my TeXstudio (2.6.2) does not work, although the command -synctex=1 is activated, the synctex.gz file is created, the "Go to Source" button appears, and there is no error message. I use Windows 7 Pro.

Welcome to TeX.SX! Do you use the internal viewer? – Torbjørn T. Feb 24 '14 at 11:46
The built-in viewer, yes – user46767 Feb 24 '14 at 16:25
I guess that you have either (a) a space in the file name, or (b) a space in directory name, or (c) an accented character in the file or directory name. – Sveinung Feb 24 '14 at 20:35
