# Different behaviour in BaKoMa TeX and MiKTeX

I am trying to use the resume template by David Grant.

I have put both the `.tex` file and the `shading.sty` file together in one folder.

When I use BakomaTeX (v 9.83) to convert the `.tex` file to PDF I get the shading regions perfectly fine

but when I use TeXworks of MiKTeX on the same `.tex` file along with the `shading.sty` in the same folder, the output is

Further, when I removed the `shading.sty` file from the folder, MiKTeX compilation failed indicating that the `shading.sty` file was being used. I need to get the shading even when I use MiKTeX to convert LaTeX to PDF.

Welcome to TeX.sx! I think we could do with a minimal working example (MWE) for testing. In particular, it would be useful to see what file versions are in use: add `\listfiles` to the input and edit the results from the two compilations into your answer. –  Joseph Wright Dec 23 '12 at 10:15
I get the desired output if I compile with the `DVI > PS > PDF` chain on the `.tex` file in your link. But I would second @JosephWright's suggestion for you to provide an MWE. –  hpesoj626 Dec 23 '12 at 10:20
@hpesoj626 That was my other suspicion: difference in drivers due to a different route (not all code works with direct PDF output). –  Joseph Wright Dec 23 '12 at 10:25
Same crystal ball says that your BakomaTeX is configured to run through a `DVI > PS > PDF` routine. `:)` –  hpesoj626 Dec 23 '12 at 23:29
AFAIK BaKoMa does not include pdfTeX (I would be quite surprised if it did, since pdfTeX is GPL and BaKoMa is closed source). –  Martin Schröder Dec 24 '12 at 12:44

I wrote this answer for the sake of closure. I don't use BaKoMa TeX but with MiKTeX installed, you can compile your document through the `latex > dvips > ps2pdf` sequence in your terminal. To do this, open your terminal/command line and go to your working directory. Then run the following commands. Change `myfile` to the name of your file.

``````latex myfile
dvips myfile
ps2pdf myfile.ps
``````

As mentioned by Joseph Wright in comment, some differences in output are caused by running different drivers. In the case of `shadings.sty`, the following comment can be seen at the end of the file:

``````% Here are some simple PostScript routines.
%
% The TeX command \PScommands must be called before any of the
% shading routines can be used.
``````

If you don't want to use the terminal for compiling your document, you can set up TeXWorks to compile your document through the `latex > dvips > ps2pdf` sequence. I don't use TeXWorks but most text editors can be set up to execute this compiling sequence.

I suspect that BaKoMa TeX follows a similar procedure albeit using proprietary drivers.
