I've started working with latex a few weeks ago, and it's been working fine. When today I wanted to edit my file and suddenly I got the error: Log file not found. Of course I searched if this question was already answered but usually it was for people who just reinstalled Texstudio, not that it just stopped working suddenly.

I hope somebody knows how to fix this?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Welcome to TeX.sx! The suggestions posted as comments to this one will probably help you: tex.stackexchange.com/q/67292. If you have a copy of your file before the recent changes, can you still compile that? Or any other file? Chances are that there is some error(s) in your tex file and TeXStudio cannot cope. Hence we cannot help without seeing your attempts to identify and fix the error in your code, in the form of an MWE. Compiling via the command line should reveal those errors more reliably. – cyberSingularity Jan 10 '13 at 8:56

@PatrickT's solution didn't work for me. I was able to solve this problem by removing a period . from my .tex file name. Apparently, that's a no-no. – k-dubs Sep 4 '15 at 21:50
Just change your filename so that it does not contain any incorrect extensions, dots etc. make it a simple filename and let us know what happens. It solved for me. – Ashutosh Gupta Dec 19 '15 at 13:39

The log file is created when running LaTeX, so if this is an error (the processing stops) or if it persists if you run LaTeX again, show your output.
