I just installed protext for my win 7 (64bit) OS. I have mixtex sucessfully installed and TeXstudio.

For some reason I can't compile documents with TeXstudio. If I write minimal tex document and press "Compile" I doesn't do anything. "Build and view" also doesn't do anything.

I can compile documents normally with TeXWorks thought. Do I have to teach TeXstudio where to find MikTex or something?

    You probably installed TeX Studio before MiKTeX. If that is the case, uninstall TeX Studio and re-install it. – Bernard Oct 22 '14 at 9:36
  • Well that was easy. Thanks! I knew I wasn't supposed to but I guess I had a brain freeze during install. – Jeb Oct 22 '14 at 9:56

Installing TeXStudio is not the same as installing the LaTeX distribution. They are independent and you need both of them to use LaTeX in TeXStudio.
