I'm a newbie in the whole TeX-&-LaTeX-based world, and I'm trying to install MiKTeX right now.
My OS is Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit.
I had MiKTeX, LaTeX, and LyX previously installed. I uninstalled them via the Change or Remove a Program of Windows.
The file I downloaded was Basic MiKTeX Installer, 64-bit. After downloading it, I started the installation, and got these errors:
I first got a pop-up error:
I pressed "OK", and it took me back to the installer, where it showed me another error:
I repeated this process about 2-3 times, and in all of them, I had all the folders of MiKTeX, from what it seemed to me. And, And, in every single time, I got those errors.
In the error message of the pop-up, it mentioned a log file. After I installed MiKTeX for the first 2-3 times, where everything seemed to be installed, I went to that log file, and it was empty.
I don't know if the installation happened successfully in the previous times, since I got the same errors every single time, but now, I'm sure that it didn't.
Now, the only folders & files that I have are:
setup-2016-11-17-16-06.logwhich you can view here
As opposed, like I said, to all of the folders that were installed, that seemed to be like they are all of what should be after a successful installation - folders like
pdflatex and others.
How can I fix this?
