This is an error that appears everytime I try to build the output of my document though texnic centre. As you can see in the image, the error is: "option pdftec requires pdftex, but pdftex features are mssing". What can I do to solve this problem?

  • Welcome! Probably you are compiling with tex or latex rather than pdftex or pdflatex. tex will execute pdftex, for example, but with a non-PDF output option so that pdfTeX features are disabled. Check if you can compile from the command line, if so, look at the settings of your editor to correct the issue. – cfr Aug 29 '15 at 1:48

The screen shot shows that xelatex is used, but the graphics/color driver pdftex.def was requested. Likely some graphics or color package (e.g. graphics, graphicx, color, xcolor) was loaded with option pdftex.

This is wrong, because pdfTeX ≠ XeTeX.

Remove the driver option pdftex. Usually XeTeX or pdfTeX in PDF mode are detected automatically (or specify the correct driver option).
