Until several hours ago, when I was clicking Shift+Ctrl+P in WinEdt 9.0, it did both the compilation and gave the preview of the pdf file.

However, now it only does the PDFTeXify processing. How can I return it back to the previous state?

The complete error is:

Command Line:   bibtex.exe "File1"
Startup Folder: E:\Folder1;File1

This is BibTeX, Version 0.99d (MiKTeX 2.9)
The top-level auxiliary file: File1.aux
I found no \citation commands---while reading file File1.aux
I found no \bibdata command---while reading file File1.aux
I found no \bibstyle command---while reading file File1.aux
(There were 3 error messages)


Command Line:   texify.exe --pdf --tex-option=--interaction=errorstopmode --tex-option=--synctex=-1 "E:\Folder1;File1.tex"
Startup Folder: E:\Folder1;File1

pdflatex.exe: Invalid argument.
pdflatex.exe: Data: File1
texify: pdflatex.exe failed for some reason (see log file).

  • Also, This happens in all of my tex files in winedt, even in those I have not editted in days. – Mike May 9 '15 at 15:17
  • Which is the error you get? – karlkoeller May 9 '15 at 15:31
  • @karlkoeller: The error is "pdflatex.exe failed for some reason (see log file)". But I can not access the log file, it is grayed – Mike May 9 '15 at 15:34
  • Can you add to the question the complete error you get in the console? There's a button 'Copy to Clipboard' in the console toolbar that helps. – karlkoeller May 9 '15 at 15:40

    You have a ; in your folder name and this is causing the error. – karlkoeller May 9 '15 at 15:51

The problem is that you have a semicolon (;) in your folder name and this is causing the error.

The path isn't recognised by pdflatex because it contains the semicolon.
