Im having trouble using the chronosys package:

Here is my MWE:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{chronosys}

\begin{document}
  \startchronology[startyear=1800,stopyear=2000,height=.5ex,startdate=false,stopdate=false,arrow=false]
   \chronoevent[conversionmonth=false,datesseparation=.]{1900}{Test}

  \stopchronology
\end{document}

On Overleaf everything works fine, but on my computer using https://symera.de/texportable (pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17 (MiKTeX 2.9.6210)) it doesnt. The error message reads:

The code "compiles" nonetheless with the following output: enter image description here

I already included the chronosyschr.tex.

It seams like there is a problem with a non update package. Unfortanetely I cant auto-update them, because of a blocked internet connection.

    Compiles without error on my TeXLive 2017 installation. Have you updated your miktex (both as user and admin) – daleif Aug 29 '17 at 7:42
  • Im using the portable version symera.de/texportable. I cant use the auto-updater, because of the blocked internet connection. It would be helpful to somehow narrow down the package(s) which could produce the error. – JulianWgs Aug 29 '17 at 7:49

    Put \listfiles at the beginning of your MWE and in your log you'll find all the packages you're using, with their version. Comparing them with the versions in CTAN you can see which one needs to be updated. – CarLaTeX Aug 29 '17 at 8:02

    Can you show us the complete .log file? Mark it up as code, not as a quotation. In an error message like that, the line breaks matter. – Torbjørn T. Sep 1 '17 at 12:50

    That log file is incomplete, are you sure you got the whole thing? – Torbjørn T. Sep 1 '17 at 13:22

It seems that the package chronosys is not properly installed.

You can do the following workaround:

  1. Download from https://www.ctan.org/pkg/chronosys the zip file and
  2. extract it in the same directory you have your given MWE.

Then you can compile your MWE (with a little pretty printing)

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{chronosys}

\begin{document}
  \startchronology[%
    startyear=1800,
    stopyear=2000,
    height=.5ex,
    startdate=false,
    stopdate=false,
    arrow=false
  ]
  \chronoevent[%
    conversionmonth=false,
    datesseparation=.
  ]{1900}{Test}

  \stopchronology
\end{document}

without error or warning with the result:

enter image description here

It could be that it is a bug in MiKTeX, please report it to the support of MiKTeX (www.miktex.org).

  • Do I have to "uninstall" the package for this to work? – JulianWgs Aug 30 '17 at 13:04
