I've been using TeXstudio without any problems for a while. Now, whenever I try to compile some documents I get this error:

"Could not start Default Compiler:PdfLaTeX:
pdflatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmeode "Name_Document".tex

And the message I get is:

"Sorry, but pdflatex.exe did not succeed. You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if you need help.
Process exited with error(s)"

Also, if I click on Help-->Check LaTeX Installation I get:

"Could not start :: pdflatex -version"

I've also tried to download again the last version of TeXStudio, but nothing changed. My test code is:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{article} 

Questo è il mio primo documento in \LaTeX. 
  • Welcome to TeX SX! Could you post a minimal (non-)working example? – Bernard May 31 '16 at 10:56

    Have you installed MikTeX? TeXstudio is only an editor. – Henri Menke May 31 '16 at 11:01

    Try to run pdflatex on a command line to find out it everything is correctly installed and if your document compiles. – Ulrike Fischer May 31 '16 at 11:03
  • Yes, I had. How can I check that MikTeX 2.9 is working properly? – Keccogrin May 31 '16 at 11:03

    Did you get a log-file? Can you make a screenshort of the pdflatex run on the terminal? – Ulrike Fischer May 31 '16 at 11:19

After installing portable MiKTeX I had the same problem running texify with a parameter –-interaction=… I have disabled lines

// IfStr("%$('%!9-No_Interaction');","1",!"=",>
//  !|LetReg(4,'%$("TeX-Opt");--interaction=nonstopmode');|,>
//  !|LetReg(4,'%$("TeX-Opt");--interaction=errorstopmode');|);  

in PDFTeXify.edt and have no problems.
