I've installed latest releases of MiKTeX, GhostScript and Texmaker, but I can't compile anything. The error message "Could not run the command" appears. How do I configure it?
If you used the MiKTeX net installer (5.51 MB for version 2.9), make sure that the packages were installed and not just downloaded. This installer downloads packages just like the Cygwin installer. However, it does not install them automatically. You need to launch the installer again and tell it to install the downloaded packages. I recently installed MiKTeX on Win7 and had to go through this process. I recommend to :
- Check if MiKTeX is installed. The default installation directory is C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9.
- Check if
latexis visible from your path by typing
latex --versionon the command line.
