I installed TeXnicCenter Version 2.02 Stable (64 bit). I wanted to make beamer file for my thesis proposal. I already have my sample beamer, but when I run it, 3 errors occurred. It says

"Latex Error: File `beamer.cls' not found"

I really need to beamer. Please help me. What should I do?

Do you have TeX installed? TeXnicCenter is just a front-end isn't it? – cfr Mar 6 '14 at 3:16
I already installed texniccenter 2.02. What do you mean by a front end? – Xrylche Mar 6 '14 at 3:24
Still dont get it – Xrylche Mar 6 '14 at 4:50
TeXnicCenter is just a TeX editor. For compiling the files you write with it you also need a TeX distribution. – Speravir Mar 6 '14 at 4:56
