It's been nearly 6 months that I use TexMaker and MikTex for typesetting documents. Everthing has so far gone OK until right today, when I complie a document by pressing F1 as usual, an error appreard which said:

Error : could not start the command : pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "test".tex

The above error comes along with nothing happends in pdf viewer, which means I cannot anything in my PDF page. So anybody please if you know the way to solve this just tell me. Many many thanks to you.

  • What operating system? I know people have had trouble with MacOS updates, and that's been answered before. – Chris H Jun 23 '17 at 6:48
  • Open a command line in the folder of your document. Then type pdflatex test and hit enter. What happens? – Ulrike Fischer Jun 23 '17 at 6:50
  • @Ulrike Fischer, I have done what you said but the command line said: pdflatex test is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.. What is that sir ? – Nguyễn Hải Duy Jun 25 '17 at 7:17
