I'm trying to compile .tex file by XeLaTeX under Windows XP-32bit, WinEdt 8.0, MiKTeX 2.9 environment, however, there is no .pdf file after finishing compilation. My document is quite simple.

  test by XeLaTeX

Here is final compilation report. enter image description here The report shows that ''xdvipdfmx:fatal: Invalid paper size: 0bp, 0bp''. What's the problems? Is it because of Windows XP?

  • I cannot understand why ctex-scheme-chinese.def etc. are read for such a simple example. In my case, only book.cls and bk10.clo are read. I suspect that you are compiling some other example which is rather complicated. – Akira Kakuto Jan 12 '16 at 7:27
  • Thanks for your comment. You are right, it's my fault. I recompile the file, but the same ''xdvipdfmx:fatal: Invalid paper size: 0bp, 0bp'' with no .pdf file generated. The image is updated now. @AkiraKakuto – Hyden Jan 12 '16 at 7:39

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the issue was due to an outdated version of the software or to improper installation – egreg Mar 12 '16 at 10:00

Thanks for everybody's concern. This problem is solved by uninstalling MiKTeX and reinstalling MiKTeX. Maybe my MiKTeX version is too old, and it works well now after reinstalling.
