I got an error that moderncv.cls is missing. So, I have downloaded the complete package from here . But I don't understand where should I place it so that I won't get this error.

    You should install it with the package manager from your distribution. – Bernard Jul 3 '15 at 13:16
  • How can I do it? I am using Windows-7 and using TexMaker as my editor. – skm Jul 3 '15 at 13:17
  • Is your distribution MiKTeX or TeX Live? – Bernard Jul 3 '15 at 13:19
  • @ Bernard: MikTex – skm Jul 3 '15 at 13:20

    Then use the MikTeX package manager. You can find it in the MikTeX menu in the start menu. It has nothing to do with TeXMaker! – daleif Jul 3 '15 at 13:30

From Start menu > All Programs > MiKTeX 2.9 > Maintenance (Administrator), launch MiKTeX Package Manager, rightclick on moderncv and select Install. That's all.

  • though the internet connection is working and is quite fast still I am getting an error MiKTeX Problem Report Message: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. Data: connect failed in tcp_connect() Is there any way that I can manually put the modercv package which I have downloaded? – skm Jul 3 '15 at 13:45
  • You can change Package Repository from the Repository menu in MPM. – Bernard Jul 3 '15 at 14:17
  • I tried to do it but there is nothing much which there which can be done. – skm Jul 3 '15 at 14:26
  • Don't you have a bunch of mirrors listed? – Bernard Jul 3 '15 at 14:28

    I' feel like we don't speak of the same thing. Did you launch MiKTeX Package Manager (Administrator)? – Bernard Jul 3 '15 at 14:35
