I'm new to Emacs and AUCTeX. On my home computer (with Windows XP) I can successfully compile .tex files and then, using C-c C-c again, launch a pdf viewer (Adobe Reader or Sumatra) to view the file.
However, on my work computer (Windows 7), I can successfully compile a .tex file to pdf using C-c C-c, but when I do C-c C-c again to view, the default view command that appears is
start "" "a.pdf". Pressing Enter brings up the Windows error message
Windows cannot find 'a.pdf'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. If I change the command so that it includes the full location of the file, e.g.
start "" "//servername/mark/a.pdf", then the pdf viewer opens. At home, there is no need to change the default command
start "" "a.pdf".
I'd appreciate if anyone can tell me how to get the pdf viewer to open without having to edit the command each time. At work I have AUCTeX version 11.86.
