However today I uninstalled MiKTeX and installed 2.9.7342-x64 (with all pending updates). A full uninstall followed by a clean new install always worked before. My environment is Winodws 10 Pro, current version.

When running my application (which was working fine all day with 2.9.7269-x64) I am always prompted for:

The log file is here (apologies for the length):

If a MiKTeX reinstall doesn't help, I'll try installing the older version again.

EDIT: Installing 2.9.7269-x64 leads me to a new error that I never had with this version before:

enter image description here

... so I can't go back to the old version + I can't go forward either.

  • at first check for updates in user and admin mode and update in both mode the package database (in the menu tasks). If the problem persists you should show a small example that one can test. And stop to deinstall and reinstall miktex. This seldom solves a problem. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 13 at 20:43
  • Okay, now it works. I reinstalled the latest version (basic-miktex-2.9.7342-x64.exe) with just one change: I did not opt for "ask me first" when a new package is required. This time I opted for "yes" (just install it). I don't know if this is highly relevant to the problem I had (I don't want to repeat with a fresh install again), however ever time I did a clean UNINSTALL, deleted any residual information in AppData (i.e. deleted the folder C:\Users\Andrew\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9) and restarted my PC before beginning a fresh install. – Aendie Feb 13 at 21:00
