I try to compile my cv, using latex. My example is

\usepackage{array, xcolor, bibentry, longtable}

\title{\bfseries\Huge MY NAME}
\author{\large{\textbf{\textit{15 Febbraio 2017}}}}
\newcommand\VRule{\color{lightgray}\vrule width 0.5pt}


author={Myself, M. and Yourself, Y.},
publisher={Cambridge University Press},

title={The Title},
author={Right, M. and Left, D. and Up, L. and Down, D.},
journal={The journal},

author = {Right, L. and Left, D. and Up, P.},
title = {New title},
editor = {Red, A. and Blue, E.G. and Green, G.A.},
booktitle = {The Handbook of my world},
publisher = {Routledge},
address = {London},

When I try to compile it, the bibentries do not appear in the file. Moreover, I get the following error message:

Sorry, but "C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\texify.exe" did not succeed.

The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again:


You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if you need help

I tried to synchronize the texify file using my package manager (Miktex 2.9) but nothing happens. In addition if I try to compile again the file, I obtain the same error message and I cannot compile my tex unless I cancel all the auxiliary files I have in my folder.

Does someone know why this happens?

Thanks in advace,


You forgot a = in your bibliography. See the following entry for a corrected version:

author={Myself, M. and Yourself, Y.},
publisher={Cambridge University Press},

Then it compiles without errors.

Your second problem is solved by using the right key as follows:

2014&\bibentry{bnm}\\ [5pt]

Since your question refers to the basics of LaTeX understanding I would definitely recommend you to read one of the many LaTeX beginners guides and their chapters on debugging.

  • Thanks. However, when I compile, the reference for mybook does not appear in the pdf. I have the other two entries, but not the one referring to the book. – Dario Feb 19 '17 at 15:23
  • @Dario Solved it. – TeXnician Feb 19 '17 at 15:28
