Also change the line this line of code

One more think don't forget to check if you have the latest updates of biblatex. In order to do this Open Miktex and update the package

  • Since BibTeX is only considered a 'legacy' backend it would be better to run biber file instead of bibtex file and have backend=biber. You might need to install Biber (via MikTeX's 'Package Manager' - don't try to do that manually) before you can do this and you need to make sure that your versions of biblatex and BIber match (this is best done by updating all packages with the 'MikTeX Update' tool - run it at least twice in bot User and Admin mode to be sure).
