Update: The following is now historical. The bug was fixed with MiKTeX update from 2014-04-10, cf. regarding entry in MiKTeX Bug Tracker: Map file missing for "esvect". There is a very simple reason: MiKTeX installs all of esvect, except esvect.map, that is required to use the type 1 versions of the fonts. It actually exists in esvect-src.tar.bz2, but the ...

I guess I will answer my question, although it isn't solved as such - but at least I can use TeXcount on windows via what seems to me a very linuxy method! I installed ActivePerl I have MikTex installed which has texcount.exe as listed in the question I hunted around for texcount.pl but still haven't found it - which makes me wonder whether the executable ...

A minimal example producing the wrong behavior is \documentclass[twocolumn,10pt]{asme2e} \usepackage[english]{babel} \begin{document} \cite{xyz,xxx} \end{document} with which the .aux file show \citation{0.0pt} The erroneous behavior is due to the fact that asme2e.cls defines \@citex in a way that pleases it, while babel redefines the macro in an ...

The problem is simply that you try to compile with Plain TeX and you wrote a LaTeXdocument, that can be compiled with LaTeX (Shift+Ctrl+L) or pdfLaTeX (no shortcut, but you have an icon in the toolbar that lets you choose the compiler: You also can use LaTeXify or pdfLaTeXify to automatically compile the right number of times if your document has ...

This is more of a comment, but it turned out to be too long. If I'm imagining this correctly in my head, this is the sequence of events: You create a LaTeX-formatted file in texstudio and save it as foo.tex. You compile this file from within TeXstudio. This in turn calls pdflatex foo.tex. The pdftex engine provided by MiKTeX begins compiling the ...

Try adding the .tex extension back on to the file. I'm not sure why arXiv would remove it, but many editors will assume that it's there when running compile sequences. To see what I mean, compare the compilation for pdfLaTeX and BibTeX: $ pdflatex myfile.tex $ bibtex myfile Note that bibtex doesn't need the file extension since it also looks at the ...

According to the documentation, the inputenc package allows the user to specify an input encoding (for example, ASCII, ISO Latin-1 or Macintosh) by saying: \usepackage[encoding name]{inputenc} The choices of encoding name are listed on pages 1-2 of the manual.

The original command is mthelp, as noted by Torbjørn, to be used on command prompt. Later texdoc was introduced as alias for mthelp, so Harish’s hint is valid, as well. Execute mthelp -? (or with texdoc) for command line options (Note, that MiKTeX’s texdoc does not understand all command line options from TeX Live’s texdoc and vice versa.) To quote Ulrike ...

I was faced with the same challenge a while ago. In my case, I only needed to compile documents of a fixed format and I thus only needed a small subset of the TeX distribution. To extract this subset i wrote a script, which Sets up a "watch" on the TeX distribution (I used FileSystemAuditRules). Compiles all relevant file templates using the monitored TeX ...

I've had the same problem. I've found two ways to make it work: Solution 1. Add miktex portable to the environment variable PATH. Even if you don't have administrative privileges on the machine, you can usually set the variable just for your account. I wouldn't use it while keeping miktex on a USB drive but if you copied it onto the disk it should be ...

I was struggling with the same problem and the linked article helped me to solve the problem. Apparently the problem is that we use portable version. http://robertmarkbramprogrammer.blogspot.ch/2008/01/xxx-is-not-recognized-as-internal-or.html

Yes, I could connect outside TeX. After several more attempts to get it to run it turns out I forgot to declare the server. Using \texdbconnectionnet{MySql.Data.MySqlClient}{Server=localhost;Database=sakila; User=Manuel;Password=XXXXXX;} I could connect to the locally installed MySQL and run nlatexdb.

As the problem actually seems linked to the fact that MiKTeX 64-bit doesn't include biber, which is a 32-bit application, you should take a look at the answers to this question. Don't forget to create a Local TeXMF root if you don't already have one.
