I had to reinstall my Windows 10 machine and now the Tex document that I'm working does not compile and I have the error source file not found.

I tried to :

  1. Remove and ReInstall Miktex (32 or 64 bits)-> Same problem
  2. Install to multiple users or to a single user and with package installation on the fly and with different user profiles-> Same Problem
  3. Perform Miktex Update and Repository sync after installation -> Same problem
  4. Full Miktex installation -> Same Problem

output of command: latex file.tex

Sorry, but miktex-makemf did not succeed for the following reason:

  The jkpmn8t+ source file could not be found.

The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again:

  C:/Users/user/AppData/Local/MiKTeX/2.9/miktex/log/miktex-makemf.log

You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if you need help.

Sorry, but miktex-maketfm did not succeed for the following reason:

  • Welcome! MikTeX does not always complete the installation of fonts correctly. Sometimes, you have to update the .map files afterwards. However, I don't use MikTeX. You need to run updmap but you should probably wait for somebody to advise you how to do it who uses that distribution. – cfr Jan 6 '16 at 2:09
  • OK. You need to run updmap on the command line as user. I found a comment from somebody who knows MikTeX on another question. If that doesn't help see this question but I doubt that you need the solution there as I would be surprised if the package for this font was buggy. – cfr Jan 6 '16 at 2:13
  • The name of the missing font (jkpmn8t+10) seems to suggest that you are using microtype's automatic font expansion in DVI mode, which won't work. – Robert Jan 6 '16 at 2:21

run updmap on the command line as user solves my problem.
