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.

  • How can I do it? I am using Windows-7 and using TexMaker as my editor.

  • Is your distribution MiKTeX or TeX Live?

    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!

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?

  • You can change Package Repository from the Repository menu in MPM.

    I' feel like we don't speak of the same thing. Did you launch MiKTeX Package Manager (Administrator)?
