@AlexG: Thanks, then it is not tied to neither Windows nor MiKTeX.

@AlexG: Thanks for trying to reproduce the issue. So it is in some way connected to lualatex.

comment How can I setup PGFPlots to work with gnuplot?
I would go a step back and try it on the commandline only. Then follow the advice of running gnuplot manually, as suggested in the error message. This way you can disentangle the various issues that may arise on the way.

comment Error in compiling with Tikz Externalize
The externalization requires quite a bit of 'magic' behind the scenes to work. I would try to approach it differently and start from a minimal example and not with a large document. Also did you have a look at t_figs/OReilly_Gerard_Thesis-figure2.log to check whether there is any hint to your problem?

comment Biblatex and authoryear broken but why?
@UlrikeFischer: I have no idea why it installed biber 1.5, I used the basic installer (32 bit) a few hours ago and let it run through with the nearest repository as the source.

comment Biblatex and authoryear broken but why?
@Audrey: That turned out to be a great hint. It seems that MiKTeX is going through some restructuring at the moment. It installed biblatex 2.6 together with biber 1.5. This causes the error. Installing a newer biber 1.6 by hand fixes the issue. Thank you!

comment Biblatex and authoryear broken but why?
@Audrey: Oh, I found something that might be a hint: the .blg contains: [115] Utils.pm:167> WARN - Warning: Found biblatex control file version 2.4, expected version 2.3 and the .log: Package biblatex Warning: File 'no_month.bbl' is wrong format version - expected 2.2. This is all on an uptodate MiKTeX 2.9 install.

comment Help me to recover the seed ! pdfuniformdeviate
If you did not use the value for a cryptographic hash function maybe there is a way to calculate the original value back from the output in the pdf document. Maybe you can give a bit more information what your macro does?

comment How to learn biblatex without knowing BibTeX
I do not think you need to know about BibTeX, it is just referenced often as many users replace BibTeX with BibLaTeX. Besides the reference manual, which is in my opinion not really suited for beginners I would recommend Joseph Wright's introduction here: biblatex for idiots. This should get you started.

comment Sudden problem with build in TeXnicCenter, works fine in MiKTeX
Percusse is correct, but the reason for that is still strange. I would suggest you delete your TeXnicCenter output profiles and regenerate them using the builtin assistant. It should call pdflatex then as follows <path to pdflatex>\pdflatex.exe -interaction=nonstopmode "%wm".
