I know this question has been asked a lot of times, however I can't seem to fix my problem. My problem is as follows, I am using MikTex 2.9 and TeXWorks and I try to add the --enable-write18 to enable shell-escape however the output gives:

texify: --enable-write18 unknown option

I added it to: Preferences > Typesettings and then pdfLaTeX and selected edit and then added it to the parameter list.

Thanks

With texify you must pass the option through the --tex-option option: texify --tex-option=--shell-escape – Ulrike Fischer Jun 30 '14 at 9:31
