I tried to install MikTex 2.9 on windows 8.1, but the operation failed with the following error:

Windows API error 3: The system cannot find the path specified. Details:path="C"\program files\Miktex 2.9\doc/fonts/ec"

  • Does anyone know how to fix this please ?? – Nam nguyen hai Nov 24 '16 at 12:40

The path looks strange/wrong. I'd guess it should be C: not C". Also mixing forward and backslashes could be problematic on some environments.
