# How do I properly set up Latex-suite in Gvim?

I extracted its files in both C:\Program files (x86)\Vim\vimfiles and C:\Program files (x86)\Vim\vim74 (I'm not sure why I have these two directories; it may be due to I have gVim and vim from cygwin).

I also edited my _vimrc to add the options that Latex-Suite installation guide says.

It seems to work, since commands like !latex and !yap example.tex are executed for a simple tex file. However, in gVim the menu tabs related to Tex do not appear. Also, the command "echo Tex_CompileRule_dvi" tells this is an undefined variable.

I'm afraid I might be missing some things attrying to use Latex within gVim...

The vim-latex installation instructions say to put the files into `~/vimfiles` if you are running on Windows. Neither of the paths you mentioned above seem like they would be `~/vimfiles`.
My interpretation of those directions would be to put the files into a `vimfiles` directory in your windows home directory - same place that your `_vimrc` file would be.
