I have installed MikTex and Texmaker (also TexStudio if that is better) on my Windows 8.1. PC and when trying to compile, I get the error message "Log file not found". I am pretty sure that I just got the paths in the options wrong, but I have already tried everything I could find on the internet and nothing worked. Can you maybe tell me what exactly the log file does, where it should be and what file/application I am supposed to end up with when I type in the right command (I mean which application is going to do the actual compiling)? Thanks a lot.
