I have 32-bit miktex, on Windows 7. I was using bibtex. Now I want to switch to biblatex. Using Miktex Package Manager(MPM), I installed biblatex.

MiKTeX Version: 2.9 32-bit.

I used the following example from docs:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[american]{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage[backend=biber,style=authoryear,sortcites,sorting=ynt]{biblatex}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib}
\begin{document}
Filler text \parencite{wassenberg}.
\printbibliography[sorting=nyt]
\end{document}

However, the result I get on PDF document is: Document

Filler text ().

Biblatex does not work properly. I checked the .bib file. And it seems correct. I don't get any References section in the pdf file.

PS: I cannot find the version of biblatex using MPM, how can I find it? (If necessary.)

Question:

I'm not sure that I installed biblatex on my machine properly. What is the recommended way of doing it on a windows machine?

EDIT: (Updated)

I changed bibtex to biber in the Texnic Center settings like as the same with @Kurts answer. However, it still doesn't work.

You MWE includes a backend=biber. So you have to run biber to get your bibliography. Or change it to backend=bibtex (not so good ...). –  Kurt Aug 7 '12 at 16:22
    
What you mean by run biber? –  celebisait Aug 7 '12 at 16:25
    
PS: I tried changing it to bibtex now. It seems like it is working. However, you mentioned it is not recommended. What to do for using biber then? –  celebisait Aug 7 '12 at 16:26
    
Can you post the .log file? –  NVaughan Aug 7 '12 at 16:28

The easy answer is - instead of running bibtex, run biber, it's a drop-in replacement. –  PLK Aug 7 '12 at 16:48

In your given MWE you call biber. Try texdoc biberto read more about it. To use biber in TeXnicCenter you can build a new profile with I suppose Output (I have a German TeXnicCenter) or perhaps profile. Then click define profile and change the call of bibtex to biber.

Compile three times with the new profile and biber should work.

You can also look here and here.


You should also uncheck the box Use BibTeX with this profile checkbox on your new profile in TeXnicCenter. The result should look like:

As usual, don't forget to run more than once :) to get the references right.

To find the version of your biblatex just have a look in your log file and search for something like this (taken from your posted logfile):

(C:\Users\admin\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9\tex\latex\biblatex\biblatex.sty
Package: biblatex 2012/08/02 v2.1 programmable bibliographies (PK/JW/AB)

It shows you that you have used biblatex v2.1.

Kurt, it didn't work. I'm updating the original post. –  celebisait Aug 7 '12 at 17:15
    
@zagy; what exactly didn't work and what have you done before? Habe you changed to biber? Do you have a message like INFO - This is Biber 1.0 in your blg file? In your logfile are some hints that your bibfile has errors for biblatex (line 55). Can you fix them? –  Kurt Aug 7 '12 at 17:44
    
I updated the original question post. –  celebisait Aug 7 '12 at 17:52
    
@Kurt My pleasure. Hope you don't mind. –  percusse Aug 7 '12 at 17:59

We need to know which biber version you are using. It needs to be version 1.1 with biblatex 2.1. –  PLK Aug 7 '12 at 18:07
