I can't install beamer and have tried as many of the solutions in the other answers as I could understand (which was like, two of them).

Whenever I try to compile a beamer document, I get the classic "beamer.cls not found".

I have MikTex 2.9 on Windows 8. I try to go into the settings for MikTex but I can't find it. I search the whole MikTex 2.9 folder for "settings" and there are no results. There is no folder called "maintenance" and literally all solutions I found involved going into such a file or folder. I have the "latex-beamer-3.07" folder sitting on my desktop, and that's all I know about how tex works. I have one folder, and I want to put it somewhere else so that I can use beamer.

Like, this is completely unintelligible to me: How do I update my TeX distribution?

This is the 'solution' that all the other ones link to, which as I said I can't perform: MikTeX 2.9, install packages on the fly?

Same here, I don't know where to get to the "options dialogue": LaTeX packages: automatic versus manual installation, and related issues

I don't know what "binary" means, I don't know what anything means haha I just need to make this beamer for my thesis defense, which is tomorrow. I have used beamer before so I don't understand why this is happening, but such is my life. I just need to know where to plunk this beamer folder. Thanks for any help!

  • As far as I remember, you should search the MikTeX folder in Windows Application menu. There is a link to MikTeX manager. If this doesn’t help, I would suggest you to reinstall MikTeX with the install package on the fly option activated by default. Binary means that the file is a program you can run. – sztruks Nov 21 '17 at 8:10
  • See youtube.com/watch?v=zaRYm3BZ1wU at about 1:45 for how to open the miktex update manager. – user36296 Nov 21 '17 at 14:31
  • @sztruks would you like to convert your comment into a short answer? – user36296 Nov 28 '17 at 13:52
