I am running miktex and using texStudio. This is a file that used to compile fine. I updated my miktex and this is what I get now. Thank you in advance for any responses.

2022-05-21 12:03:12,774-0400 INFO  miktex-makemf - this process (35992) started by miktex-makepk in directory \mik71261 with command line: miktex-makemf.exe --miktex-enable-installer --miktex-disable-maintenance --miktex-disable-diagnose --verbose zxxrow7z

2022-05-21 12:03:12,782-0400 FATAL miktex-makemf - The zxxrow7z source file could not be found.

Here is the ERROR from the session run as shown in TEX Studio:

Sorry, but miktex-makemf did not succeed. The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again: C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\miktex\log\miktex-makemf.lo

  • Which versions of MikTeX and TeXstudio are you using? I know some issues of Textsudio version 3 family and MikTeX after 22.(?). I'd suggest to reinstall TeXstudio, it may be the same version as you already uses. I have no idea what this zxxrow7z could be.

  • If there is nothing against reinstall, I would reinstall. May 22 at 5:48
  • Do you have any idea why MiKTeX tries to create this font? Can you show a small but complete example? May 22 at 7:01
  • Ever since I watched someone trying to update MiKTeX 2.9 under Window 7 using the package manager provided with the installation of MiKTeX, and having the installation destroyed because new binaries were installed that were not compiled for Windows 7 instead of giving a message that there are no new binaries available for the operating system in use, I have refrained from using MiKTeX.

  • Miktex latest download from their website (basic-miktex-22.3-x64.exe. How would I find out what version of mik-tex? The console app says Conole version 4.7. Here is the download link: miktex.org/download TexStudio: TeXstudio 4.2.3 (git 4.2.3) Using Qt Version 6.3.0, compiled with Qt 6.3.0 R
