I'm using the current MiKTeX 2.9, ecact from log file: pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (MiKTeX 2.9) (preloaded format=pdflatex 2013.7.29). BTW: Which version do you use? It could be that your version is a little bit outdated?! Have a look at the beginning of your log file and add it to your question. If I copy the content of the zip file to a ...

I had more success by making the following changes to the procedure described in the question: Using Visual Studio 2010 (non-Express) or later Instead of Visual Studio 2008 Express plus Windows SDK for Windows Server 2008 Building from MiKTeX branch 2.9, revision 2476 Prepending the Windows SDK bin directory to the system PATH prior to building set ...

I had the same problem. Reinstalling MiKTeX with a thorough clean-up did not work for me. Running TexWorks as Administrator worked for me. It needed to install packages.

The ps2pdf.exe in miktex/bin first sets an environment variable so that it points to mgs.exe and then calls the ps2pdf.bat in miktex/scripts/ghostscript/bat. You can avoid the call to mgs.exe by using the .bat directly. On my machine this here tries to use gswin32c.exe (default) or whatever an environment variable GSC points to: ...

The problem apparently is that an older version of Ghostscript (9.05) came with the MikTeX2.9 installation. The executable is named "mgs.exe" and located in the folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX\miktex\bin" A quick and dirty way to fix my problem seems to be to locate the executable of the freshly installed Ghostscript "C:\Program ...

Thanks cfr and Kurt. Moving to XeLaTeX worked for me. I am using Windows 7. These are custom True Type fonts which I am required to use, and none of the built-in fonts matched in all characters. First I clicked on the .ttf files so Windows would install them. Then in my .tex file, I removed all the font lines that looked like this (which were needed for ...

I had the same exact problem except I was using WinEdt rather than TexMaker. Here is what I did. I simply close WinEdt. Then right click on WinEdt icon and then select "Run as administrator". Then compile your file as usual. It should go through the instalation without any error.

Any suggestions on how to proceed would be welcome. I would prefer not to manually change any configuration files as I came across an admonishment not to do so in the pdfTeX manual. I never bothered to repair this kind of misbehaviour of Emacs, because if I encounter "TeX exited abnormally", I have a quick look at the output. You get it in a fraction of ...

In cmd type mpm --verify=mathtools that will tell if mathtools is installed, not installed or unknown. If mathtools is not installed: in cmd type mpm --install=mathtools to install mathtools. If mathtools is unknown: in cmd type mpm --find-updates or mpm --update-db and then install. Alternative: in cmd type mpm to start MiKTeX Package Manager then ...

In recent versions of auctex, it looks like it'll be more reliable to set TeX-command-extra-options, which is designed for just this purpose, and doesn't make you override the various forms of TeX-command. So this is a nice, non-destructive way of adding options without interfering with changes down the line -- like switching between TeX flavors, enabling ...

Since the file name encoding seems to be UTF-8, the file name needs to be reencoded from Latin-1 to UTF-8. This is also supported by package grffile: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage[encoding,filenameencoding=utf8]{grffile} \begin{document} \includegraphics{Bäckerstraße} \end{document} Alternatively ...

the regexp for a and A is [Aa] not [A+a] but also as you were adding commands that had letters like later regexp were altering the commands already added. Simpler just to match all letters with one regex and add a command that adds a colour depending on its argument: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{xparse,l3regex} \usepackage{xcolor} ...

with the help received from this cite, I was able to solve the problem. Place '*.cls' in one of the folders where other *.cls files are located. E.g., I put 'asl.cls' to 'C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\amscls' Run MikTeX 2.9 -> Maintenance (Admin) -> Package Manager (Admin) That's it! Thank you all who helped. Paul
