  • Usually your .blg (biblatex .log file) should end with INFO - Writing 'thesis.bbl with encoding XXX, which I don't see here. This may be due to your warning. You should update to a more recent version of [biber](http://biblatex-biber.sourceforge.net/) and [biblatex`](ctan.org/pkg/biblatex)... – Werner Dec 15 '13 at 5:19

    If you still get the same warning that you didn't updated your miktex correctly. If you have a multiuser installation You need to run the update manager in user and admin mode. – Ulrike Fischer Dec 15 '13 at 9:59

Your example has some lacks:

Based on this information here an example which should work on your machine ( I also removed not needed packages:

\documentclass[]{report}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{biblio.bib}
@article{glashow,
  author       = {Glashow, Sheldon},
  title        = {Partial Symmetries of Weak Interactions},
  journaltitle = {Nucl.~Phys.},
  date         = 1961,
  volume       = 22,
  pages        = {579-588},
}
\end{filecontents}
\usepackage[backend=biber,authordate]{biblatex-chicago}
\addbibresource{biblio.bib}
\begin{document}
\cite{glashow}
\printbibliography
\end{document}

The result is:

  • seems biblatex is not identifying bib file – user42754 Dec 15 '13 at 14:46
  • Do you really have an updated system? Please use \listfiles` inside the example above and show us the output of \listfiles by editing your original question. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/13304/… – Marco Daniel Dec 15 '13 at 15:06
  • i do not understand what is the problem? – user42754 Dec 15 '13 at 16:14

    @user42754: based on the information above it seems you are missing to run biber. – Marco Daniel Dec 15 '13 at 16:32
