# LEd is not compiling

After 4 years I decided to take up again LEd, which I used for my bachelor thesis. It was alright until I decided to compile to see the PDF. The error was:

21-07-2015 08:27:48: START /b/c1/c"C:\Program Files (x86)\LEd\Batches\pdflatex.bat" "C:\Users\Davide Daino Raghnar\Desktop\tesi" "prima_versione_tesi.tex" C: "pdflatex.exe" non Š riconosciuto come comando interno o esterno, un programma eseguibile o un file batch.

Now, I don't know what this is. I searched online for something and I found that it could be some file not being installed properly.

I uninstalled all and reinstalled again. Nothing changed. I thought also that could be the .tex file written in the wrong folder. I did not want to move anything to avoid creating even more confusion.

But now the problem is: I don't know how to compile it. Any idea?

Now, after another day, is compiling. I don't know why. I'm using texlive 2015 and an editor (I don't remember the name, was something like windedit or similar)

• Welcome to TeX.SE . It seems that you have a problem with pdflatex which is missing. What are your IDE and it's version? – Romain Picot Jul 21 '15 at 7:19
• Don't take up LEd. That project has deprecated and the editor is quite buggy though I wish they continued because it had really nice ideas implemented. There are much more recent and advanced editors out there for each OS. – percusse Jul 21 '15 at 8:41
• There are a bunch of editors out there, see LaTeX Editors/IDEs TeXworks (included in TeX Live and MikTeX) is nice and simple. TeXmaker and TeXStudio are quite popular, and has more features. One note about this site: to make sure people are notified of comments, write @<username> in the comment, see How do comment @replies work?. – Torbjørn T. Jul 21 '15 at 9:55
• Exactly, that is not intuitive for a new user. There I like the texmaker/texstudio equivalent better – daleif Jul 22 '15 at 5:53
• @daleif That's a known bug and in the issue tracker. But the general rule is if it is a control sequence you type \doc and it completes to \documentclass if it is an environment you just write the name of the environment because the idea is to type less. I surely don't want to type \begin which is pointless for auto-completion. So I like TeXnicCenter way better. – percusse Jul 22 '15 at 10:49
