I'm having trouble compiling my document with xelatex using the latest version of biber (1.2) on Windows 7 x64 with MiKTeX. I just updated my MiKTeX packages.

As it appears that biber is not included with MiKTeX x64 I downloaded it manually from sourceforge.

Here is my MWE:

\documentclass[10pt, letterpaper]{article} 

\usepackage[
    backend=biber,
    texencoding=utf8,
    bibencoding=utf8,
    style=nature,
    autocite=superscript,
    hyperref=false,
    maxbibnames=2,
    minbibnames=1,
    firstinits=true,
    indexing=true,
    abbreviate=true,
    sortcites=true,
    articletitle=false,
    url=false,
    doi=false,
    isbn=false,
    eprint=false]{biblatex}

\addbibresource{bib.bib}

\begin{document}

\autocite{Bunton2010}
\printbibliography

\end{document}

bib file available here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/3730003/bib.bib

Here is the biber (1.2) output: http://pastebin.com/BQr4QBjr

Here is the output from the subsequant xelatex run after biber: http://pastebin.com/WvevfTKP

Note the error: Package biblatex Warning: File 'mwe8.bbl' created by wrong version.

Here is the broken pdf output: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/3730003/mwe8.pdf

If I go back to the 0.99 version of biber everything works perfectly. 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 don't work.

Is there a way to solve this or should I just use biber 0.99?

    You need to have version 2.1 or 2.2 of biblatex to work with biber 1.2. See the compatibility matrix, Table 1, in the biber documentation. Oct 21, 2012 at 19:09

The MWE works for me.

The log suggests you're using biblatex version 1.7, not the latest (2.2). I would check that you really did update all of your MiKTeX packages -- note that if some of them were installed as admin and some as user, you need to run the admin/user-level updaters separately. Also, you may have to run the (admin) updater twice, as I've found MiKTeX needs to first update some core parts of itself before it proceeds to update the other packages.
