comment What is the preferable setup for MiKTeX to keep all packages up-to-date easily?
I had problems of Windows 7 not allowing me to update MikTeX. After reading article 29616 (this) and 51799, I discovered that I must navigate to "C:\Program Files\MikTeX\miktex\bin" and from there execute mo_admin.exe or mpm_mfc_admin.exe, that requires administrative permisions, that are not linked in the start menu (I am using install 'only for me'). The similar programs linked in the start menu, does not requires administrative permissions and are unable to update MikTeX or install packages, even if I run it with the context menu (right clik over the menu entry), 'run as administrator'.

comment Landscape option do not rotate the page on documentclass instruction
Thanks to both for your useful information. I compiled with LaTeX and get a dvi file with the same problem. When I read the log file, learned that LaTeX invoques pdfTeX. Therefore I will take as a rule, that must use package geometry. Many thanks.

comment Smartdiagram error when compile
I have the same problem too. My document worked well in february. I left it without changing anything and returned to it on april 26, having the same problem. I have checked the dependencies and all are fullfiled, except for TikZ for which I don't have a way to now what components of that package are installed. I tested the example from the package documentation and the problem persists. If I compile with a minimum example, only loading \usepackage{smartdiagram}, but not refering to it inside the document environment, the error shown says: \usesmartdiagramlibrary{core.definitions}
