I was writing a document for months using TexMaker and everything worked fine. Today suddenly nothing (usefull) happened after quick build. I also tried pdfLatex and Latex commands and log file doesn't contain any error.

When I click pdflatex command it starts and ends doing something in a second and the log file contains the following content:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.4-1.40.13 (MiKTeX 2.9) (preloaded format=pdflatex 2013.11.25) 29 MAY 2016 21:18

The log file is the same for any latex document. For long document that I'm writing it for months as well as for document looking like that:


I'm using windows 8.1 and since yesterday(when everything was working) I didn't install any programs or change latex configuration. But I did get bluescreen today.

Any suggestions what I could do to fix that?

    Run your test document on a command line to get a better error message (and make a backup in case something is really wrong on your pc) – Ulrike Fischer May 29 '16 at 19:48

    Do you an reboot? Then ther was a change! BTW: Your MiKTeX version is outdated! The current version is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17 (MiKTeX 2.9 64-bit), yours is -1.40.13! Can you please explain better your problem? Do you have a deadline? Can you update? – Mensch May 29 '16 at 20:06
