After my old computer broke down, i have installed latex again on my new computer with 64-bit windows 7. However, when I try to compile a simple example that alaways worked before, i always get the error 'subfigure.sty' not found. When I remove the subfigure package, the compiler instead complains on the acronym.sty. I have updated the MIkTex but it didn't help. Does anybody know why this error appears?
In MikTeX you can chose if you want to have new packages installed automatically or manually. To enable automatic installation, open the MikTeX settings dialogue (under
Maintenance (Admin) select
Settings (Admin)) and change the setting
Install missing packages on-the-flyto
yes. Using this setting together with TeXnicCenter works for me.
As I do not know how did you install the packages manually, first of all, I would recommend you to take a look into the MikTeX Package Manager (Admin). If you would be able to find them there, it means that MiKTeX knows about them and the problem is somewhere else.
Next, you can edit your Question and put some minimal work example (MWE) of your latex code you are trying to compile. Then the community can be helpful more.
