# input index file not found

Dear experts I am using TeXnicCentre. After compiling, while I get an output pdf file, an error is found that says Could't find input index file *pathname* nor *pathname*.idx

I am afraid I cant pinpoint the error. Please help.

Many thanks Abhimanyu

Here are my (simplified) tex and bib files

Go into TeXnicCenters menu Output->active output profile (don't really know the english names) and disable the checkbox for using makeindex

@Abhimanyu: Could you then please mark the answer as correct so that the question is closed. Thanks! –  Martin Scharrer Jan 30 '11 at 16:26
@Martin: In principle you're right, but usually one should wait a day before accepting an answer, so it's better if you wait with such comments. –  Hendrik Vogt Jan 31 '11 at 8:59
@Hendrik: Thanks, I will do that. I just saw that a lot of new people usually forget that. –  Martin Scharrer Jan 31 '11 at 9:10
