# MiKTeX 2.9 bugs between xkeyval or dstroke

Please help a not installation expert. I just upgraded from MiKTeX 2.8 to MiKTeX 2.9 and I use TeXnicCenter 2.02. The compilation "hangs" whith the line

"MiKTeX 2.9\tex\generic\xkeyval\xkeyval.tex"

It does not go on even after half an hour... When I stop the building process the next line reads

"MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\dstroke\dsfont.sty"

Both packages are correctly installed. I even uninstalled them and re-installed them, but it didn't help. Moreover missing packages are installed on the fly.

What happens if you compile the file without the editor, i.e. through the command prompt. TeXNicCenter is know to hide certain MikTeX messages making debugging rather hard. –  daleif Mar 28 at 12:19
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. –  Speravir Mar 29 at 1:57
Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you. Note that it's not necessary to sign your questions (as there is already a box with your username below it) or to begin them with a greeting. –  Speravir Mar 29 at 2:00
Also a suggestion: Do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user1234". The name “MathOMan” you signed with in your question would be fine since it’s not used by another person. –  Speravir Mar 29 at 2:02
