I'm on a Windows 7 machine, using the most recent version of vim-LaTeX with gVim. With all of the defaults, using \ll to compile my document only runs LaTeX once, when it should run multiple times, including a bibtex run. I tried manually adding the line

let g:Tex_MultipleCompileFormats = 'dvi'

but it does not help. I get no errors from the original LaTeX run.

What's strange is that this setup works fine for me on a different machine. I don't know what else to try.

I'm using Windows 7 with Sumatra PDF Viewer and the following settings in my vimrc file work fine:

" Compiler and viewer settings
let g:tex_flavor='latex'  
let g:Tex_CompileRule_pdf = 'pdflatex --synctex=-1 -src-specials -interaction=nonstopmode -file-line-error-style $*'
let g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat='pdf'
let g:Tex_MultipleCompileFormats='pdf'
let g:Tex_ViewRule_pdf =  'SumatraPDF -reuse-instance '

Hope it helps.
