I created a bibliography file named bibliografia.bib. This is the code:

% Encoding: UTF-8

  title     = {Θεωρία των Τύπων},
  publisher = {Στάχυ},
  year      = {2000},
  author    = {\textlatin{Bertrand Russell}},

And this is the main text:






\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Βιβλιογραφία} %line1
\nocite{*} %line2
\bibliographystyle{plain} %line3
\bibliography{bibliografia} %line4


Without the lines line1-line4 everything is OK, but with them compiling doesn't stop. I get this error message:

Error: Could not start the command: "C:/Program Files/MiKTeX 2.9/miktex/bin/x64/bibtex.exe" "MainText"

What maybe wrong?

    Are you sure this code gives you the error? I can compile it fine, I just get a warning telling me that no \author is given. – Vincent Dec 8 '19 at 17:58

    It looks like the issue is connected to a faulty installation of one or more components of MikTeX2.9. – Mico Dec 8 '19 at 18:34
  • @Vincent , yes I 'm sure. I tried it many times without any good result. – Kώστας Κούδας Dec 8 '19 at 18:48
  • @Mico , so what is the solution? I hope that I don't have to reinstall MikTeX... – Kώστας Κούδας Dec 8 '19 at 18:49

    How recently did you either install or update MikTeX? – Mico Dec 8 '19 at 19:00
