# Problems with Texstudio combined with Biblatex/Biber [closed]

enter image description hereI have read almost all of the questions already asked related to my question but did not find the answer that worked for me. I am a Latex newbie and cannot figure out how biblatex works with texstudio.

I changed the bibliography to biblatex. The standard bib tool to biber and in the adnvanced settings the default to biber as well. My texstudio is up to date. My miktex version is the 32bit one (so biber is included).

My bib file is in the same directory as the tex file and I compile with running pdfLatex-->biber-->pdfLatex-->pdfLatex

Here is the result when run my tex file:

\documentclass[pt11,a4paper]{article}
\date{\today{} Vienna}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[ngerman,english]{babel}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amstext}
\usepackage[backend=biber,style=authoryear,sorting=nyt,natbib=true,hyperref=true]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{Citing.bib}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[onehalfspacing]{setspace}

\begin{document}
test \parencite{kurano_growth_1990,}

\printbibliography

\end{document}


...and this is the result... Process started: pdflatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "texstudio_xF4620".tex

Process exited normally

Process started: biber.exe "texstudio_xF4620"

INFO - This is Biber 2.1

INFO - Found 1 citekeys in bib section 0
INFO - Processing section 0
INFO - Looking for bibtex format file 'Citing.bib' for section 0

ERROR - Cannot find 'Citing.bib'!
INFO - ERRORS: 1

Process exited with error(s)

Process started: pdflatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "texstudio_xF4620".tex

Process exited normally

Process started: pdflatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "texstudio_xF4620".tex

Process exited normally


The citations just show the reference key and there is no bibliography at the end of the document. Is my bib file somehow damaged? Can I repair it somehow?

Thanks already for your answers.

• Welcome! What happens if you compile from the command line? Is Citing.bib a regular, readable file? – cfr Oct 6 '15 at 21:58
• Sorry for this stupid question but how do I compile from the command line? I just know how to set the commands and the nice shiny green button in texstudio. Citing.bib is a regular file yes. – user89291 Oct 6 '15 at 22:06
• Oh my God! I don't know what I did or how.... I just deleted the corrupted file and now it works! Now I just have to figure out why it works with this one and not with my original file (same preamble and all but just different text) :) thank u so much guys! If I have more questions I will ask again! – user89291 Oct 7 '15 at 9:24
• Probably :)! Thanks again guys! U are awesome! – user89291 Oct 7 '15 at 9:33
• I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about a problem that was apparently resolved by deleting corrupted files. – moewe Oct 7 '15 at 10:19
