    Can you please explain what not works? "Does not work" is not very helpful ... Have you run bibtex or biber? Which way? What is the content of your bib file? – Mensch Oct 23 '12 at 19:26
  • I've edited this to indent your code: you can do this by putting four spaces before code, or selecting it an using the code button {}. Apart from some more explanation as Kurt suggests, you might like to include the relevant .bib entry, preferable via filecontents. As things stand it will be hard to help. – Paul Stanley Oct 23 '12 at 19:27

    It looks like it might be a biber cache problem: something I've experienced a few times. Have a look at humtex.wordpress.com/2011/11/29/… and try clearing the cache. – Paul Stanley Oct 23 '12 at 19:54
  • I'm not on a windows machine, but I think you need to delete everything from the long number and below it. Section 4.1 of the Biber documentation says "To clean up, you can just remove the whole par-<hex_encoded_username> directory/folder and then run the current binary again." – Paul Stanley Oct 23 '12 at 20:07

    @PaulStanley I delete the files and the problem is solved. – Eric Danielski Oct 23 '12 at 21:12

Okay. Just to have a starting point run the following MWE (store it in a separate directory to avoid changing your file Facharbeit.bib). On my system it runs without problems. Please see that I deleted libertineotf because I run it with pdflatex and then libertineotf throws errors.
