  • Welcome to TeX.SE! MikTeX 2.7 is rather obsolete by now. Did you mean to write MikTeX 2.9? Please advise. – Mico Jun 25 '14 at 13:05
  • This is like installing a new Ferrari engine in an old Gran Torino; great car, but bound to break apart with such an engine. I believe that MiKTeX 2.9 runs on Windows XP. – egreg Jun 25 '14 at 13:10
  • @egreg: it does run on XP. – Bernard Jun 25 '14 at 14:08
  • @Mico : Miktex 2.7 but it is always possible to put in it some add-on in the texmf tree ! unfortunately the luatex package is not complete.I think that Something else must be done e.g building the fmt files ! P.Hall – P.Hall Jun 25 '14 at 15:38

    LuaTeX has been available in MiKTeX for many years. However, if you didn't install before and your MiKTeX version is no longer 'current' then you'll have to update your MiKTeX: it's not possible just to 'drop in' the LuaTeX binary from an arbitrary source. – Joseph Wright Jun 26 '14 at 9:46
