I am writing my thesis using MiXTeX 2.9 and Winedt 10 as my editor. I use biblatex with Biber as backend. I have created a main file, "thesis", from which I load individual chapters using the \input command. No matter what I do, I get the error message above in the thread title. I have tried removing section after section (and deleting output files between each run), but the error message persists until I have virtually removed everything.

I have also tried many of the suggestions given in the other threads on this common topic, but to no avail... Below is an example, and after the document I have added why I presume to be the relevant parts of the .log file. Any ideas?

  • It is easy to solve such problems -- but only if one has the files. In your case the input files and the bib. – Ulrike Fischer Dec 19 '16 at 16:42
  • current latex gives an easier to read error message but even the older version you have shows the exact character that needs to be defined if you show the exact error message. cut and paste the error from the log into a code ({}) block in your question. – David Carlisle Dec 19 '16 at 17:14
  • @DavidCarlisle, I have read through the -log file and I honestly cannot detect the error message there. I will edit my original message and add all the information from the .log file that seems relevant. But it does not say "error" anywhere. – EspenJK Dec 19 '16 at 17:31
  • @UlrikeFischer, ok, what should I do? These exact tex-files compile just fine on my work PC, but I have simpy sent them to myself on email, and they won't compile on my laptop... Mind you, if I erase ALL text from the input files, and remove the \addbibliography command from the main file, (and erase the output files), the error still persists... – EspenJK Dec 19 '16 at 17:35
  • @DavidCarlisle: If I would guess I would say typical case of "I show what I think is relevant". (And I would guess some invisible space character is making the trouble, one of them which have been added to a current t1enc.def) – Ulrike Fischer Dec 19 '16 at 17:42
