In the *.synctex file the link


shows up correctly, however, somewhere in between the file. Now, I copied the link to the end of list of inputs at the top of the synctex-file, saved it and its working fine.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Please have a look on the Sumatra-Version and the description of backward and forward synchronization on http://william.famille-blum.org/software/sumatra/index.html.

I used that version and description to overcome the problems to configure syncronization of Sumatra and WinEdt. That should work with TeXnicCenter as well.

With a running configuration, it was no problem to update that specific Sumatra-Version using the latest one from the Sumatra homepage without losing the configuration settings.
