I have been using MikTeX/TeXworks for a while and have really enjoyed its universality and facility. I usually compile laTeX documents with XeLaTeX or pdfLaTeX. However, I was not able to input Chinese characters with TeXworks. For instance, I have installed the ctex and few CJK related packages using the MikTeX console, and the tex document does not seem to compile properly. To be specific, I do not get a single Chinese character from the output pdf file.

In this stackexchange question, it explains how to utilize ctex package with XeLaTeX or pdfLaTeX. But I do not compile my laTeX documents under linux, neither want to install the entire all-in-one ctex software. On the other hand, the overleaf site provides the environment to work with ctex, and it seems to work fine.

Therefore, I understand that in principle, what I wanted to achieve is not impossible, but what is a minimal amount of style file installation one needs in order to use ctex or ctexart package under Miktex? Many thanks in advance!

Edit1

The following example is from the overleaf site, which complies fine there. MikTeX will stop and try to install certain package and stays there forever, even after I installed ctex package by using its console.

\documentclass{ctexart}
\begin{document}
\section{中文标题}
中文内容
\end{document}

Following the example given by Ulrike Fischer in his answer, I got the following log file:

  • Show a small complete example that demonstrates what doesn't work so that one can test the issue. Feb 5 '20 at 12:50
  • I added a small piece of example which is copied and slightly modified from that of the overleaf site. @Ulrike Fischer

Try a different fontset:

\documentclass[fontset=fandol]{ctexart}
\begin{document}
\section{中文标题}
中文内容
\end{document}

enter image description here

The default windows fontset of ctex tries to load a font which is not (or not longer or perhaps only in some cases) in windows.

  • I really appreciate for the help. Now it compiles but still not showing any Chinese characters. The only warning msg I found in the log file is "Package fontspec Warning: Font "FandolSong-Regular" does not contain requested (fontspec) Script "CJK"." What else I should look for instead of sending the entire log file? Again, many thanks!

  • add \XeTeXtracingfonts=1 (assuming that you are using xelatex) and then show the log. Feb 6 '20 at 8:36
  • Thanks! Here is the log file gofile.io/?c=mZZZ4v

  • Don't sent a log from an unknown source document. My example doesn't produce 5 pages. Feb 6 '20 at 9:30
  • Thanks for the comments. I appended the log output to the original question, for some reason it is rather large. Please take a look. Again, appreciated!
