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 ?

  • I'm afraid not: the old binary files do not exist any more. Why the hell would you want to install the old version?

  • thats because I have got 2.8 in my pen drive. Currently unable to install 2.9 because of poor net speed

  • 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.
