    Welcome to TeX.SX! This seems a faulty installation. – egreg Sep 29 '17 at 7:52
  • @egreg i uninstalled and installed it again and after updating it happened again – Hosseinmp76 Sep 29 '17 at 8:08
  • Why ist pdflatex.exe in AppData? Do you have multiuser or a single user installation? – Ulrike Fischer Sep 29 '17 at 8:12
  • @UlrikeFischer I complied using pdflatex. I use both multiuser and single user. – Hosseinmp76 Sep 29 '17 at 9:52
  • IIRC, you cannot install MikTeX without deleting the original (not just uninstalling it). You might have multiple copies and textworks is linking to the wrong one. – John Kormylo Sep 30 '17 at 16:42
