I got subtle error when running lualatex on my new desktop (W7 Pro Russian x64, MiKTeX 2.9 64-bit). Similar program set on my laptop (W7 Home Russian x64, MiKTeX 2.9 64-bit) gives no errors. As it is seen from attacted log, LuaLaTeX cannot generate font base reporting that lualatex.EXE cannot find network name \\MiKTeX\]MPM[\fonts\opentype. Indeed, there is no such path on my comp. Luatex.exe is looking for server \\MiKTeX, which is absent.

Running DebugView with various trace options gave me no idea where the problem came from. The only visible difference between my desktop and laptop is that the desktop is included into company's network through novel client (which I hate, to say truth). I would appriciate any adea on how to resolve my problem.

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.70.1-2011080216 (rev 4277)  (format=lualatex 2011.10.10)  11 OCT 2011 09:45

    Perhaps your user roots are on the network. Does kpsewhich --expand-var="$TEXMF" show a root with this path? Or are there symlinks or something like this which connects your user profile with the network path? – Ulrike Fischer Oct 11 '11 at 7:40
  • @Joseph: this problem persits for almost a year and not limited to my own case only as shows this post: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/49532/… – Igor Kotelnikov Mar 31 '12 at 18:40
