As you can assume, English is not my natural language. Apologies in advance, if it is bad and poor, and please be indulgent.

comment How can one install biber on miktex 64-bit?
@Bernard I added a hint in the beginning of the additional note. C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming is %Appdata%, C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local is %LocalAppdata%, and C:\ProgramData is %AllUsersProfile%.

comment scrwfile removes partial Toc created with titletoc
That you use titlesec you did not mention … There are working packages with last changes before 2008 … What do you mean with interface? Do you mean: The documentation is far from ideal. I made two of my edits, because the recommended command is mentioned much later than the older one, especially on the places, where the older commands are explained often no hint to the newer version is given. (I am not a regular user user until now.) Otherwise there are worse documentations.

@Bernard I use Win7 myself. Could you tell me, please, what changes you refer? Perhaps in chat?

comment Using \renewcommand{\familydefault}{} to use times new roman everywhere
As addition: win­fonts, must be installed separately, works only with pdfTeX (a map file only for this, but the documentation is confusing) and the Truetype versions of supported fonts must be installed on the system. You could try, whether it works on Mac. ;-)

comment Using \renewcommand{\familydefault}{} to use times new roman everywhere
It has reasons, why both egreg and Herbert use \addtokomafont. So the existing definition is not overwritten, only the switch, where you actually add the new definition. But one could also use \setkomafont{\normalfont\rmfamily\bfseries}. I would add a \large or \Large, though, depending on the font.

@UlrikeFischer I guess Bernard followed my instructions in Create a local texmf tree in MiKTeX, where I wrote something about this.

On first run biber.exe extracts all needed files containing a rudimentary Perl interpreter into your user directory %Temp% into a folder par-… with … being a long number. Sometimes, when one observes problems with biber the only solution consists in deleting this folder.

Hmm, seems that Hans Hagen thinks the macro package is to blame: tracker.luatex.org/view.php?id=770#c1103

comment scrwfile removes partial Toc created with titletoc
Consider filing a bug to Markus Kohm. There is a file komabug.tex in the doc subtree for KOMA-Script. As alternative you could take a look on minitoc, loosely related to this is KOMA-Script (scrbook): onecolumn table of contents & minitoc in twocolumn document.

comment TeX Fancy-preview,fancytooltips, Perl library Config::IniFiles
Just as reference: “ … you need an installation of a Perl distribution … Unfortunately you must additonally install the module Config::IniFiles by hand: …”, and explanations for Strawberry Perl and AcitivePerl follow. One must know, that in the moment there is no module repository for ActivePerl 5.18.

comment \printglossaries is not generating anything for me
@BennyNeugebauer Do you use MiKTeX? There are frequently problems regarding perl scripts in MiKTeX, but the makeglossaries.exe didn’t start perl.exe in a test here, though a Perl distribution is installed. For TeX Live there are no problems known at all.

comment Apparent package bug/conflict
It works here with an up-to-date MiKTeX as expected. When you add a line \listfiles in the beginning, what a version of hyphenat do you get? Here the according line from log is hyphenat.sty 2009/09/02 v2.3c hyphenation utilities. BTW You should update your TeXnicCenter installation. There were fixed some bugs, also related to co-operation with MiKTeX.
