# Beamer doesn't compile on windows using minted [closed]

Have the same problem than him: Beamer presentation fails to compile after TeX Live upgrade

I'm on windows using miktex (texworks), compiling with --shell-escape. I have the same message:

``````LaTeX Warning: You have requested, on input line 406, version
`2010/12/07' of package ltxcmds,
but only version
`2010/03/09 v1.4 LaTeX kernel commands for general use (HO)'
is available.

! Undefined control sequence.
l.542 \ltx@newglobalif
\ifGPT@pagecolor
?
``````

I think I need the version of the 2010/12/07 but I can't find it. Does anybody have the solution ?

Edit 28/11: I tried changing the source (pdftex) and patching by myself, but didn't succeed.

Edit 29/11: Here is the log Joseph, http://pastebin.com/ELiHYKHR. I just wanted to make you remember what is written in minted documentation: "Windows support is sketchy / untested at the moment. There are two complications: installation and usage." But I'd really like to make it work, and write a tutorial about it.

Edit 29/11 13h45: I removed the sty, I got this:

``````C:\Users\Minipada\Desktop\Cours LaTeX\Presentation>set  /p x= 0<nul: 1>>presentation_1.aex
C:\Users\Minipada\Desktop\Cours LaTeX\Presentation>set  /p x= 0<nul: 1>>presentation_1.aex
C:\Users\Minipada\Desktop\Cours LaTeX\Presentation>set  /p x= 0<nul: 1>>presentation_1.aex
file deleted

I don't have this when I keep .sty files. Strange ...

• And the solution in the comments to that question does not help? – Martin Schröder Nov 26 '13 at 22:55
• Nope, can't solve this ... – David Bensoussan Nov 27 '13 at 14:43
• Can you make your log available somewhere? Almost certainly you have an outdated file 'locally' installed. – Joseph Wright Nov 28 '13 at 11:36
• Your problem is likely that you have some files in a 'local' folder (for example `C:\Users\Minipada\Desktop\Cours LaTeX\Presentation\infwarerr.sty`). I suspect these are old, and thus causing the problem. Note that these are nothing to do with `minted` (which works fine on Windows once you install Python, etc.). Try moving the 'local' `.sty` files away from the folder with the presentation. – Joseph Wright Nov 29 '13 at 6:59
