@RobtA It is much better to use Ulrike Fischer's receipt: mpm --install=miktex-vc120-bin.

comment How to set PATH variable in portable miktex to be used with texmaker
Go to the command line and check if you are able to run xelatex from there. Also, check that the path given to xelatex is correct. The "../" indicate that the command is run from the parent directory of "miktexport". If that not correct, the command will fail. Since the .exe file is in the path, you may try to remove the path from the configuration file, i.e. use "xelatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex".

comment MiKTeX 2.9 Portable update corruption
Well, I got the error that the program could not be run because mvscp120.dll was missing. The problem seems to be that I run the update from the GUI. I will try to reinstall the portable version and update the .dll from the command line.

@UlrikeFischer It's not there. I have miktex/bin in my path. I run the portable version from the c:drive due to limited rights on my work computer.

comment MiKTeX 2.9 Portable update corruption
@UlrikeFischer I just get an error mpm.exe is not recognised as a command. In the portable version, lot of .exe-files were removed during the update (also the icon-tray program).

comment MiKTeX 2.9 Portable update corruption
I can confirm this error. It happened to me to. It seems that mixtex delete some important files, and does not copy in new one. When I run the update, I fist got the error that mixtex could not find the package manager due to missing msvcp120.dll-file. When I closed the icontray-app and restart, the cmd-file did not find the icon-tray.exe. I checked, and the files did not exist on my system.

comment TeXstudio problem inserting circumflex into equations
@cfr Since @dingo_d needs to use AltGr+3 to reach the circumflex, I only tried to lead in the direction that he was hit by the same QT bug as I am. The circumflex is a ‘dead key’ on my keyboard (reached by Shift+^) and I have thereafter have to press Space to produce a stand alone ^. No difference from producing any other characters that normally are used for accents (~^¨`´). On my keyboard, it is the same.

comment Avoiding empty space at the bottom of a scrlttr2 letter
It to avoid that the layout is to ugly. If you add six seven additional lines on the front page, the layout looks weird. Scrltt2 anticipates that you have a footer witd address, telephone numbers, etc. in bottom of the front page. If you want to squise more taxt on page 1, increase the DIV-factor to 12, and reduce the font size to 11 pt.
