It's strange but I am unable to compile beamer class documents under Windows 10. The following example


aborts compilation at \documentclass so that \typein macro is not reached. I see only the following message:

Qt: Untested Windows version 10.0 detected!

Other documents are compiled with success as usually. I tested both PDFLaTeX and XeLaTeX engines. I have the most recent version of MikTeX. MiKTex binaries were updated on 15th of June.

Update: There is a similar trouble with Windows 8.1, see MiKTeX (x64) on WIndows 8 Qt Error

Update 2: As follows from the dialog below with Ulrike Fischer, the problem is caused by recent (2015-06-24) updates of MiKTeX binaries. This is quite typical case for MiKTeX: its updates too often destroys working systems.

    I have no problems with windows 10 here. – user11232 Sep 7 '15 at 2:03
  • @HarishKumar: Are you running MiKTeX with all recent updates? MiKTex binaries were updated on 15th of June. – Igor Kotelnikov Sep 7 '15 at 3:10
  • I always have up-to-date TeX ;-). Yes I updated yesterday. – user11232 Sep 7 '15 at 3:56

    Disclaimer: I don't have windows 10 yet. Beside this: Run the package manager (admin), synchronize (menu repositories) and then check if there are new, uninstalled packages starting with miktex and install them. Then run the update manager (admin). In case that you are using texworks: Compile once on the command line. – Ulrike Fischer Sep 7 '15 at 8:10

    @UlrikeFischer: Christian would hardly accept this bug report if the problem persist only from inside WinEdt. – Igor Kotelnikov Sep 7 '15 at 14:46
