I've recently started writing a long academic paper and some other problems forced me to update MikTex to a current version. I ran the Updater (Admin) several times. Now I have two issues. The TeXworks gui has horribly oversized fonts in its user interface, the fonts are over the top big. But I could carve my eyes out and live with that. The main problem is that when a package is missing (e.g. the url package in this case), the install package dialog pops up during compilation and upon clicking ok, crashes pdflatex. If I try adding the package via Package Manager (Admin), I get the following crash:

Unhandled exception at 0x77d4dd10 in mpm_mfc_admin.exe: 0xC06D007E: Module not found.

Any idea which module might be missing? This is just another problem on top of many problems. I gradually destroyed my document and now also the MikTex installation ... great. I should get a job in the industry.

EDIT

When running from Texworks, I can also see the following texify log:

And the error is the same:

Unhandled exception at 0x77d4dd10 in pdflatex.exe: 0xC06D007E: Module not found.

  • Check carefully that you have all new packages and updates by synchronizing and using the package managers. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/108447/… – Ulrike Fischer Jan 7 '16 at 9:03
  • Yes. I have ran the updater several times, now the list is empty. Bad timing, I dont like it. How can I go to the working pre-dezember 2015 miktex? – the swine Jan 7 '16 at 9:06
  • I didn't wrote "update manager" but "package manager". Did you actually read the answer I linked to? – Ulrike Fischer Jan 7 '16 at 9:13
  • Oh, right, my bad. Except that I can't install any new packages (did you read my question?). Also I somehow doubt that Swedish hyphenation package is helping my problem in any way. – the swine Jan 7 '16 at 9:21
  • Your question says something about "if I try updating the package via Updater (Admin),", nowhere is mentions the package manager. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 7 '16 at 9:23
