Apologies if this is answered elsewhere, but I've been searching message boards for hours and tinkering with fixes... it seems to me that I have a problem with my MiKTeX / TexMakerX installation.
I have just installed the most recent installation of MiKTeX (64bit version) and
biblatex, and manually placed the most recent
biber.exe in the MiKTeX
bibtex command is set in TexMakerX as
"C:/Program Files/MiKTeX 2.9/miktex/bin/biber.exe" %
And my "quick build" function is set to
pdflatex - bibtex - pdflatex - pdflatex.
I've been testing with the biblatex samples (I'll just call it
biblatex-examples.bib downloaded in the same folder) from
bibtex generates the following errors
warning - no file sample.aux warning - no file sample.bbl --a whole bunch of undefined citation errors-- warning - empty bibliography on input line 51 %whereever \printbibliography is placed warning - file 'sample.out' has changed warning - there were undefined references please (re)run Biber on the file:(biblatex) sample(biblatex) and rerun LaTeX afterwards
biber as requested through a command window generates:
data source ....(long path out of Temp folder)...\inc\lib/Biber/LaTeX/recode_data.xml not found. Compilation failed in require at Biber/Utils.pm line 20. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Biber/Uutils.pm line 20. Compilation failed in require at Biber/Utils.pm line 8. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Biber/Uutils.pm line 8. Compilation failed in require at (eval 24) line 2. ...propagated at C:/strawberry/perl/lib/base.pm line 94. BEGIN failed--compilation abobrted at Biber.pm line 5. Compilation failed in require at script.biber-MSWIN line 17. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at script.biber-MSWIN line 17.
So... there seems to be no communication between the local
.bib file and the
biblatex system. And I'm clueless on what to do after all this tinkering...
