# Packages siunitx and cancel not working together [closed]

So I tried to use the MWE in the answer to this question.

However my output looks identical to the original post's problem.

I checked using `\listfiles` and my version of `siunitx` has cancel support. How do I get `cancel` and `siunitx` to work together?

I'm using TeXLive 2014 from the Arch repositories.

• This question does not fall within the scope of TeX, LaTeX or related typesetting systems as defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

• Please edit in your `\listflles` output: 'has support' doesn't really help us. (Things certainly work with an up-to-date `siunitx`.) – Joseph Wright Sep 12 '15 at 6:27
• I added the `\listfiles`. – PTNobel Sep 12 '15 at 16:29
• You'll need to update `siunitx`: there was a bug with support for `\cancel` in the version you've got installed. – Joseph Wright Sep 12 '15 at 17:06
• I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the issue was due to outdated software and has been solved with an update. – egreg Sep 12 '15 at 17:28

According to this issue, there was a bug in `siunitx` that was fixed about a month ago.
To fix this problem while I wait for TeXLive 2015, I downloaded the zip file from the releases section the that page, and then unzipped it, ran `tex siunitx.dtx`, and copied the `siunitx.sty` and the `siunitx*.cfg` files into the root of my project.
