The current version of microtype is 2.5a (released 2013/05/23) and this is the version available both with TeX Live 2014 and MiKTeX 2.9 (see http://miktex.org/packages/microtype). The numbering system might be confusing, but 2.5a is a maintenance release after 2.5, which supersedes 2.5beta.

I had this error for quite a while this morning. The only way to handle this is to wait some time. The problem is lying on the server side as changes of IP or election of another mirror did not do the trick here. In case, you get this error again, you may want to report that to the maintainer.

I found the solution actually. By selecting the Font Style of Times Roman in MikteX by using package mathptmx And by selecting Label style in Mathematica as LabelStyle -> Directive[ FontFamily -> "Times"] worked for me.

The Unicode reference is a red herring really, for pdftex you would need a classic (256 character) font that has such a character. There may be such a font but it is simpler really just to use a graphic. best would be a scalable image. If you have a system font with it in, make a small pdf, but a bitmap image also works, I just drew one. You can then define ...

You can use the second () optional argument of picture to allow for your negative coordinates, but simpler is just leave a blank line after the picture and put \vspace{5cm} before the caption

You can use latex rather than pdflatex then dvips -E ... will try to generate an EPS file from the resulting dvi. Alternatively use pdflatex then there are several tools available to convert pdf to EPS (almost all wrappers around ghostscript) imagemagic convert for example.

The following command worked for me, under cygwin. I installed pandoc 1.13.2 and MiKTeX 2.9.5105 64-bit. Then I ran: pandoc -s \ --latex-engine='C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\x64\pdflatex.exe' \ -f markdown_github -t latex \ "my-file.md" -o "my-file.pdf" The key here is that I gave the full path for MiKText's pdflatex.exe in the --latex-engine ...

If the package was originally installed "on-the-fly" or by using the user-mode Package Manager, its updates will appear only in the user-mode Update tool. Only packages installed using the admin-mode Package Manager will appear in the admin-mode Update tool. I've now switched to TeX Live, but back in my MikTeX days I would always be sure to check for ...

You can do the Synchronization mentioned in the second answer by using the Maintenance (Admin) tools mentioned in the first answer. Synchronize is an option under the Repository entry on the top menu.

I had the same problem with WinEdt and Windows 8.1 when I starting a new user profile in Windows. When I was trying to compile a presentation in Beamer, the same error was popping up. Tracing the log file, I saw that WinEdt was not able to download the package from the internet. Then, I have installed TeXStudio and tried to compile. It connected to internet ...

As you are using TexnicCenter, the solution is to add two (or even three, if you use booktables for example) additional compilations. Just define a new profile (as copy of your currently used profile) and edit it. In the post-execution tab you add two (or whatever number of additional compilations you need) tasks, and in each of your task you copy the ...

Also on CTAN the latest setup version seems to be 2.9.5105. Directory CTAN:systems/win32/miktex/setup/ contains: ba­sic-mik­tex-2.9.5105-x64.exe 166174984 2014-01-01 19:08 ba­sic-mik­tex-2.9.5105.exe 171108104 2014-01-01 19:08 mik­tex-portable-2.9.5105.exe 164409038 2014-01-01 19:34 and the older versions setup-2.9.4503-x64.exe ...

Can you please try with \documentclass[final,5p,times]{elsarticle} and you don't need to modify the template with \twocolumn[ \begin{@twocolumnfalse} \begin{frontmatter}. I have just checked the documentation on http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/CTAN/macros/latex/contrib/elsarticle/doc/elsdoc.pdf and according to the doc (page 2) 5p is always two column ...

Your version of MiKTeX seems to be a little bit outdated. My current version is: pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.15 (MiKTeX 2.9), yours is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (MiKTeX 2.9). Please update your tex distribution. If your MikTeX is well installed the following is working: Open Windows terminal Change to the directory with test ...

I deactivated both my firewall and my antivirus programm before running the installer, so those weren't the problem. I once more tried the solutions that are suggested in Windows API error 5: "Access is denied" when trying to compile TikZ picture and, finally, a slightly modified version of the suggestion given by sevenkul(15) did the trick: "If ...

Installing TeXStudio is not the same as installing the LaTeX distribution. They are independent and you need both of them to use LaTeX in TeXStudio.

From your code: (f:\Software\_Office\MikTex\tex\csplain\base\csenc-u.tex (f:\Software\_Office\MikTex\tex\generic\enctex\utf8unkn.tex) ! Undefined control sequence. l.116 ...in=1 \mubyteout=3 \mubytelog=1 \xprncodes =0 implies that the file f:\Software\_Office\MikTex\tex\generic\enctex\utf8unkn.tex is read ...

The format definition is wrong. You don't have a compiler selected and the input file is missing. On my (non-portable) miktex it looks like this:

Your tex code seems fine. I would suggest to use the elsarticle template. \documentclass[two-column,final]{elsarticle} If you use the two-column and final option, you should get the layout you want. This template is e.g. included with the texlive-publishers package in Debian or Ubuntu or can be downloaded at elsarticle at CTAN

Kurt's suggestion will suffice if you used the default install location. But this is really just a convention: nothing's to stop a 64-bit program from being installed in Program Files (x86) or a 32-bit program from being installed in Program Files, or indeed either of them in any other location. The way to be sure is to start a program (here pdflatex) on ...

It depends on which installer version did you use? In the image you can see the different versions you can choose to install. If you do not know which one is installed look with the windows explorer if MikTeX is installed in directory x86. Then you used the 32 bit version. If not it is the 64 bit version.

Y'all are great! I'm sorry about not posting how I derive myStuff@filename. Should I re-edit the original question? We're using either MikTeX 2.9 or 2.3 (trying to phase this out) Not using quotes was the problem. \Verbdef from newverbs also works. Here's an example of the bad code: % The following actually writes to 'my.tex' \renewcommand\TestFilename{my ...
