I downloaded MiKTeX and the Texmaker editor. After writing and saving my script, when I try to compile using pdflatex it gives me a "log file not found" error message. What's wrong or how do I fix this?

  • What happens if you compile from the command line? – Bernard Jan 4 at 17:52
  • before that did you get an error that pdflatex could not be run? – David Carlisle Jan 4 at 19:40
  • thank you all. Hi, @Bernard. I compiled from Toolbar. Today i try to compile another simple file and I don't have problem. Probably there is an error in the code but I don't understand. – Daniela Jan 5 at 10:14
  • Hi @DavidCarlisle. When I compile this file nothing appears on my desk but there is no file log. – Daniela Jan 5 at 10:22
  • Compile from the command line, you will see messages from the compiler. – Bernard Jan 5 at 10:29
