I was trying to install MiKTeX 2.8.35553 and landed up with the following error. enter image description here

Can anybody tell me the exact installation source ? Thanks in advancce...


MiKTeX 2.8 was replaced with MiKTeX 2.9… in october 2010. You should download the latest version from MiKTeX home page.

  • if i want to install the older version will that not work ? – Hirak May 5 '16 at 12:19
  • I'm afraid not: the old binary files do not exist any more. Why the hell would you want to install the old version? – Bernard May 5 '16 at 12:24
  • thats because I have got 2.8 in my pen drive. Currently unable to install 2.9 because of poor net speed – Hirak May 5 '16 at 12:33
  • I'm afraid there's no solution. You wouldn't be able to update packages to their present version. Maybe download at night while you sleep… Or ask at your university. – Bernard May 5 '16 at 12:50
