I have to use tikz-cd package to draw triangular commutative diagram. I have downloaded the tikz-cd package and put the file.sty in the same folder where I have the latex file. Then I wrote \usepackage{tikz-cd} but it returns me "Process crashed". Can someone help me? I'm not so able to install Latex packages. Thanks!

  • Welcome to TeX SX! You should install it via MiKTeX console (Package Manager). – Bernard Sep 4 '18 at 22:23
  • Please can you explain me how to do this? – robbis Sep 4 '18 at 22:27
  • or can you tell me where can I read about it? Thanks! – robbis Sep 4 '18 at 22:28
  • Do you have a user-installation or an installation for all users? – Bernard Sep 4 '18 at 22:29
  • Sorr, I don't know. Where can I find this information? – robbis Sep 4 '18 at 22:33

Here is how to do it: in Program Files, select MiKTeX 2.9 > Maintenance (Admin) > MiKTeX Package Manager. You should obtain a popup window like this:

In the small edit window which ends with the icon of a funnel, you can filter the packages to speed up the process. Select the tikz-cd package, right click on it and ask for install. That's all.

  • I don't have Maintenance, but I have Package manager and Package Manager (Admin). If I open te Admin One, search the package tikz-cd and try to install, Windows says that Miktex stopped working – robbis Sep 4 '18 at 22:52
  • Are you sure you you don't have a compilation that's going on? – Bernard Sep 4 '18 at 23:13
  • Yes, all compilation were closed. Do you know other packages to draw triangular commutative diagrams? I gave up with the installation of tikz-cd :) – robbis Sep 5 '18 at 5:22
  • I've uninstalled and then reinstalled Miktex and followed your instructions, now all works! Thanks for your help! – robbis Sep 5 '18 at 6:02
