I have written a report on overleaf, but now I have to continue on desktop. In Overleaf the report works fine, but if I download the source, both texworks and texmaker will fail to produce a pdf file. I downloaded the software last week, and checked for updates, so it should be up to date. The report is a document with class \documentclass[whitelogo]{tudelft-report}, which I downloaded from the university website (https://www.tudelft.nl/en/tu-delft-corporate-design/downloads/). The only change I made in the class document is to have bibliographystyle IEEEtran instead of tudelft-report. The .tex file looks like this and in overleaf it works just fine, it produces a content page, an empty page and a page with the text of the test .tex file, but on the desktop it only gives the error below:



%% Use Arabic numerals for the page numbers of the chapters.


%% Use letters for the chapter numbers of the appendices.


The test chapter looks like this:

In this chapter nothing will be explained. In fact this chapter is not even necessary to understand the matter. Please do not read it.

I went camping one day, the dog got hypothermia, but otherwise it was a splendid experience. 

This is the last piece of the log in Texmaker:

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file futb8r): Font futb8r at 795 not found
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

When I try to run the file in texworks also the font futb8r is not found, but I checked and the font is in folder C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\fonts\tfm\public\fourier in the miktex installation. I have tried renaming the 'fourier' folder, so miktex would reinstall the font by itself, but that gave new, different, errors. I reinstalled miktex to be on the safe side, but now it cannot find font futb8r again. Unfortunately, I do not remember what problem miktex had when I renamed the fourier folder. Does anyone know how to fix or circumvent this issue? I am not a computer expert, so if it is a more complicated solution, please give me some details on how to get there.

Kind regards, Julia

    Try installing fourier via the miktex colsole, this auto install feature does not always go as planned

I found a solution:

The installation was on the local C drive, but the files were on a (protected?) network drive. I have moved them from the network drive to the C drive and it compiles fine now, also when I put the 'real' chapters as input. I saw some issue with access in the logs, so this seemed like a logical thing to try. Thank you for thinking along and maybe this will help someone else.
