    Did you install LaTeX, e. g. MiKTeX? Commented Jun 9, 2020 at 6:01
  • Maybe read the last sentence of the error message more closely. This sounds like a convenient solution. Commented Jun 9, 2020 at 6:51

    Just add the LaTeX bin directory to your path. How you do that depends on your Windows version.
