# Existing solution for biblatex

@daniel I did run biber and it does not show any mismatch in version @moewe. Here is the result.

Result of \listfiles:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,twoside,openright]{report}
\usepackage{times}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage[top=2.5cm,bottom=2.5cm,left=3.5cm,right=2.5cm,includefoot,asymmetric]{geometry}
\usepackage[centertags]{amsmath}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage[backend=biber,authordate]{biblatex-chicago}
\newpage
%input "XBib.bib"
%\setlinespacing{1.44}
%\bibliographystyle{chicago}.
\printbibliography
%\bibliography{XBib}
\end{document}


BIBLIOGRAPHY FILE

@article{glashow,
author       = {Glashow, Sheldon},
title        = {Partial Symmetries of Weak Interactions},
journaltitle = {Nucl.~Phys.},
date         = 1961,
volume       = 22,
pages        = {579-588},
}

• 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

• updated miktex packages but problem still persists. any thing else shall i check? – user42754 Dec 15 '13 at 6:51
• 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

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}
\begin{document}
\cite{glashow}
\printbibliography
\end{document}


The result is:

• @Daniel thanks a lot... but my machine has stuck there. its giving warning of empty bibliography and undefined citation. do i need to re install? – user42754 Dec 15 '13 at 14:41
• 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
