amstex.exe was essentially superseded in the mid-1990s by a latex implementation; therefore amstex.exe is needed only for legacy documents. if you didn't start using (la)tex until after 2000, you can safely ignore amstex. nonetheless, it's rather puzzling why amstex.exe would be flagged, but none of the other tex binaries. the reason for the quarantine ...

I had the same problem. The solution of the problem is: Start -> All Programs -> MikTex 2.9 -> Maintenance (Admin) -> Settings (Admin) Select "Formats". The following window appears Click "New" and the following window appears Do the following (a) Format key: put whatever you want (for example, latex_metapost_btex) (b) Format name: latex (c) Input ...

As an alternative to \RequirePackage{luatex85} I opted to try out the experimental miktex packages (enabled with the checkbox on the main screen of Update (Admin) for MikTeX as described and illustrated: http://miktex.org/kb/miktex-next). Then in order to ensure everything was successfully registered(?) I went to Settings (Admin) for MikTeX and on the ...

I don't think that cmd.exe was ever directly allowed (in restricted mode). You need to run your document with --shell-escape. When I try your document I get a prompt in the window where pdflatex compiled the document. If you want a new cmd.exe windows you should probably use \immediate\write18{start cmd.exe} (again --shell-escape is needed).

Your TeX distribution is a little bit outdated and that causes your problem. Please see The following lines: Mine system: Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 ... (preloaded format=pdflatex 2016.1.29) ... Your system: 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 ... (preloaded format=pdflatex 2016.1.10) ... % ...

The difference is a change in babel.def between 2012 and 2013: In TeXLive 2012 babel.def contains \bbl@redefine\LaTeX{\textlatin{\org@LaTeX}} And there the example compiles. This redefinition has then been dropped. Now the definition of \LaTeX is unchanged and no longer can be used in math in current tex systems.

You also can use the plain TeX macro package insbox: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage[demo]{graphicx} \usepackage[verbose]{wrapfig} \input{insbox} \begin{document} %% Tight margins \setlength{\intextsep}{0pt} %% Does not work \section*{Curricula Vitae} % \InsertBoxL{0}{\includegraphics[width=96pt,height=22pt]{example-image}}[-1]\noindent ...

Well, I'm not sure but I think package lmodern should be part of the basic installation of MiKTeX. Please see the following image. I called the MiKTeX Package manager and filtered for lm (Latin Modern). Then you can see if Latin Modern is instaled, if you see an date in column installed. BTW: Do not forget to call package lmodern to activate Latin Modern ...

I will answer this question of my own for documentation purpose: MikTeX by default doesn't come with any scalable fonts that pdfTeX is happy with - who knows exactly what makes pdfTeX happy except cm-super... When using MikTeX, if encounter auto expansion is only possible with scalable fonts error, install cm-super fonts family, execute initexmf --mkmaps ...

My personal experience suggests that for a MiKTeX repository "to be online" is not only a question whether that repository is accessible via HTTP or FTP, but also whether it contains valid package data. Contary to an old comment of @ulrike-fischer written here, every time when I start the MiKTeX Update Wizzard with a fixed repository selected, the wizzard ...

So, I chose an easy way to solve the problem. I uninstalled texworks as well as MiKTex and installed them again. Now, it works.

The TeXWorks for MiKTeX is a inbuild version and not updated to the very new version 0.6.1. With that I mean, that MiKTeX uses special directorys for the files needed for TeXWorks, for example: C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\x64\texworks.exe C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\doc\texworks\help\Manual\en If you compare that with the original zip file ...

You did not use biblatex package... This is a modified version of your MWE which works fine: \documentclass[oneside,12pt]{scrbook} %scrbook has more options than article \usepackage[autocite=inline, labeldate=true, uniquename=full,uniquelist=true, style=authoryear,backend=bibtex]{biblatex} \usepackage{lipsum} %easy acess to the text \usepackage{scrhack} ...

Use \titleformat from package titlesec to change the chapter font. For the lower levels you can use the stared version of this command. \documentclass{book} \usepackage{accanthis} \usepackage{palatino} \usepackage{titlesec} \titleformat{\chapter} [display] {\Huge\bfseries\accanthis} {\huge\chaptertitlename\space\thechapter} {20pt} {} ...

I am having similar issues at the moment, I think the problem is on their side. You can check if a site is down here: http://www.websitenotworking.com/miktex.org. It reports the website as not working atm. My error is ="connect failed in tcp_connect()" but since we can't access the miktex.org site I think we have the same source.

When setting up a LaTex installation it is important that you are consistent with the permissions chosen for both the installation and usage of any portion of the setup. This is especially important for any Windows installation. 1) If you are going to be the only person using LaTeX on this computer and you do not have access to the admin settings, then ...

There's no way to change the spacing between the integral symbols (for double and triple integrals) provided by esint, because they are single characters in the special font associated to the package. What you can do is to modify the spacing provided by amsmath, which is defined by the \intkern@ macro. For instance you can do as follows; the extra -4mu kern ...

Why not take a look at the git-repo of the developers? https://github.com/mredaelli/circuitikz The values are defined in the file: https://github.com/mredaelli/circuitikz/blob/master/tex/pgfcirc.defines.tex (For versions <0.5 this file was called circuitikz.code.tex) The shapes you will find in the other files, mainly pgfcircbipoles for path ...
