This question already has an answer here:

I have a fresh Windows 10 operating system installed. I am unable to install the MiKTeX 2.9 latest update in Windows. I got the following at the end of the log file after failed installation process:

updating package definition directory ("C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tpm\packages")...
installed 3066 package definition files

log4cxx: No appender could be found for logger (initexmf).
log4cxx: Please initialize the log4cxx system properly.

Sorry, but "MiKTeX Configuration Utility" did not succeed.

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

An error occurred:
  source file: Libraries\MiKTeX\Core\Process\Process.cpp
  source line: 159
  message: The executed process did not succeed.
  info: fileName="C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex/bin/x64\initexmf.exe", arguments="--common-install="C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9" --set-config-value=[Core]SharedSetup=1 --admin --log-file="C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex/config\uninst.log" --verbose", exitCode="1"

I have tried uninstalling Adobe Reader, turned off antivirus.

  • Welcome to TeX SX! If I understand well, you had a previous installation that you want to update? – Bernard May 4 '17 at 19:52
