My apologies if this has been asked before — but I searched both on this site and online in general, and I couldn't find a solution to my problem anywhere.
I recently reinstalled MiKTeX 2.9 on one of my computers. When I compile, I have a habit of hitting
\nonstopmode after the very first error. Previously, after I do that, MiKTeX (or rather pdfLaTex that it runs) would still generate an output pdf file. Of course, the file would look weird, but then I can fix that one error, and compile again, and so on, and so forth …
But now, in this new installation, there's no output produced when I do that. Instead, after doing all the work it eventually stops and shows an error message "Sorry, but "MiKTeX Compiler Driver" did not succeed."
I'm sure there's an option for the compiler that controls this behavior, but I don't know what that option is. Could you help me please?
