For reasons unknown to me I had to uninstall old MikTeX due to console problems after an update six days ago and with the recent installation of MiKTeX 2.9.6930 I have actually problems with compilation. I add images and errors. I have clean all with CCleaner and other programs and regedit registry manually, removing all residues from the previous installation and cleaned Appdata and removed manually MikTeX 2.9 manually. The uninstall icon was not present. I'm very anxious about formatting. I kindly ask for your precious help.

First problem for initexmf.

3rd problem: From the compilation of file .tex with TeXworks:

Remedy:%%%%%%%<---done!


Close running MiKTeX programs and try again.

The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again:

  • Something locks the fndb. Check miktex.org/kb/fix-file-in-use and if this doesn't help, open an issue in the miktex issue tracker. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 15 at 20:25
  • @UlrikeFischer With this MikTeX is a continue problem :-( every two months there is a problem into my PC. I thank you very very very much. Into my previous question here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/419957/… for my opinion missing also two paths as into red rectangle of the figure to the step 4. – Sebastiano Jan 15 at 20:31

    Why should it help? Drop miktex if you can't handle it and install texlive. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 15 at 20:41

    In one of the german groups someone resolved a similar problem by installing the "next" versions of miktex. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 15 at 20:45

    Don't use texify - it will hide all the valuable diagnostics from you – user177954 Jan 16 at 9:17

If you need to reinstall again consider a single user basic install.

MiKTeX always say in guidance but single users ignore the advice to NOT install for admin use. You MUST do everything twice

On this occasion I suggested you

1) exit and restart PC first
2) THEN DO NOT OPEN EDITOR as files may be locked open by one blocking the other
3) JUST open MiKTeX-console. SO FIRST AS ADMIN do a full update
4) Go to TASKS update FNDB and font maps (watch for errors)
5) DO THE SAME as user.
6) NOW test the editor

Your directories are short since two are the same but those are the normal COMMON defaults just check they exist with the expected collections of files.

What may be missing from before is additional user defined directories like blah\blah\mytexmf

IF you had a GENERIC user texmf you may need to add that back.

Directories may differ for admin and user ? but I don't run in dual mode

    Your suggestions were fantastic and I really appreciated your clear answer. Unfortunately I'm used to MikTeX, I'm with an old pc from 2004. I don't even know how TeX Live works. Everything is at its best. I was thinking about formatting the computer tomorrow :-( Eureka!!!!! Thank you very very much. – Sebastiano Jan 15 at 23:08
