# problem with xepersian referencing

I'm writing my MSc thesis using LaTeX in Persian. When I use the XePersian package all the references including the number of sections, figures, equations, references disappear. Only the numbers of chapters are shown. I don't know what to do. When I remove the command \usepackage{xepersian} all the numbers come back but I cannot write in Persian.

I would be thankful if anyone can help me.

• This is not normal behaviour of XePersian. Perhaps you did something wrong. Provide an MWE (minimal working example) that illustrates your problem. – Hasan Zakeri Jun 18 '13 at 18:05
• @HasanZakeri: I even tried a simple example in the XePersian manual and its not working: 1 \documentclass{article} 2 \usepackage{xepersian} 3 \settextfont{XB Niloofar} 4 \title{ {یک سند نمونه 5 \author{ {نام نویسنده 6 \begin{document} 7 \maketitle 8 \tableofcontents 9 \part{ {عنوان بخش 10 ... 11 \section{ {عنوان قسمت 12 ... 13 \subsection{ {عنوان زیرقسمت 14 ... 15 \subsubsection{ {عنوان زیر زیرقسمت 16 ... 17 \end{document} – Sina Jun 18 '13 at 18:32
• @HasanZakeri: I was wondering whether if the problem is the distribution of TEX. I'm using currently MiKTeX 2.9, should I try TeX Live? – Sina Jun 18 '13 at 18:47
• Update all of your packages (including XePersian and bidi) and tex distribution. – smh Jun 18 '13 at 20:15
• @smh: I tried upgrading the packages and bidi. It's not working, and it gets worse when I upgrade the packages by receiving lots of error! I'm trying to upgrade TEX distribution. – Sina Jun 18 '13 at 21:01
