You can active 'Install Packages on the fly' option in MikTeX Settings or use MikTeX Package Manager to download packages.

  • Thanks, however when I actived install packages on the fly option, and run the code again, still some problem said "File tikz.sty not found". – sweetyBaby Feb 13 '13 at 8:57
  • @sweetyBaby: What is your winedt version? – Ulrike Fischer Feb 13 '13 at 9:06
  • @UlrikeFischer 6.0 – sweetyBaby Feb 13 '13 at 9:09
  • Then it is possible that winedt is blocking the on-the-fly installation. Compile once in another editor (e.g. texworks which comes with miktex) or on the command line. Or install the missing packages with the package manager. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 13 '13 at 9:19
