I have a template LaTeX file from ACM conferences but it gets terminated on \maketitle. Does it have something to do with the fonts? or do you have any solution?

It also gives other errors when you remove \maketitle

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18 (MiKTeX 2.9.6500 64-bit)

  • (1) Welcome, (2) Please make sure your question make sense to others? How should we know what you're doing when the only thing you provide is the error message. Please provide minimal (but complete) code that for you give this issue and that others can copy and test as is. If the code uses a non-standard class please also provide a link to that class.

  • My guess is that you have an outdated version of acmart.cls, but the information you provide is not sufficient to make a full diagnosis.

  • @daleif Hi I am very new to LaTeX. So, I have no idea what this class is but I provided the link where the file can be downloaded. But regarding the code, I will modify it and past the entire code in a second.

    @Fzm --- you could try downloading and installing the latest version of MiKTeX. Sep 30 '20 at 9:16

    I’m voting to close this question because the issue was solved by a software update.

@IanThompson gave me a solution and it was literally it. You can either manually download the latest version or you can use the MiKTeX console to automatically update it. I did the latter and it solved the problem. to find the MiKTeX console, try to search your start bar by typing "MiKTeX console".
