I installed the latest texlive and pandoc on windows 8.

I am able to compile tex to pdfs by manually invoking pdflatex.

When I try to go from markdown to pdf via pandoc I get an error about not being able to find article.cls

I don't have a user name over 8 characters.

If I uninstall TexLive and switch to MikTex it works.

I tried to get support from the official pandoc channels but after looking at paths, usernames, etc.. it was suggest I post something here.

We are trying to figure out why running pdflatex from the command line would work but running from pandoc would not.

    This is now fixed in the most recent versions of Pandoc. – Stephen Lien Aug 13 '14 at 0:17
