I am trying to use LuaLaTeX in TeXnicCenter (or TeXworks as well), due to TeX capacity issues. However, no output files are produced (.log, .pdf), and I cannot see any error in the build output;

See the image below

I updated my MiKTeX packages, but nothing changed. I also know there should be no error withing my *.tex file, as it was compiled successfully by a friend.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

    Could you post the complete output if you compile your file using lualatex POE.tex. – Aditya Dec 5 '13 at 7:51
  • @Aditya that was the complete output using LuaLatex->PDF in TexnicCenter – user2536125 Dec 5 '13 at 7:52

    Can you post the output when you compile your file from a command prompt. – Aditya Dec 5 '13 at 8:04

    @user2536125 Fine. And you should learn to really look at the output: You wrote you can't see an error while the second line of screenshots shows the words "fatal" "error" "I' stymied" - and this line has even a gray background. – Ulrike Fischer Dec 5 '13 at 8:20

    @user2536125: I know that you meant this lines. But you should learn to look at the complete output and not only on the summary. The summary doesn't catch everything. And I added an answer that you can accept. – Ulrike Fischer Dec 5 '13 at 8:40

You have no working format. Go to MiKTeX settings, tab "Format", select "lualatex" and click on build. If you get an error copy the error message.
