The last two who had this error had a problem with a virus program kicking in (Avast in both cases). See e.g. https://github.com/MiKTeX/miktex/issues/585

To compile a previous version of the pgf manual as a whole you can perform the following steps: Clone the git repository: git clone https://github.com/pgf-tikz/pgf Checkout the tag you want to compile the manual for (you can list the tags using git tag). I'll do that for 3.0.1 by running git checkout 3.0.1. Configure an RCS provider script like https://...

In older LaTeX versions mixing small caps (\scshape, \textsc) and italic (\itshape, \textit) didn't really worked. The commands cancelled each other out, you only got the one or the other: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \begin{document} {\scshape\itshape abc} {\itshape\scshape abc} \end{document} gives e.g. in texlive ...

AFAICT, there are two separate issues that need to get resolved: (a) How to inform the front-end/editor that you wish to compile your document with LuaLaTeX (or XeLaTeX) rather than with pdfLaTeX; and (b) how to modify the tex file so that you can use the system fonts called Arial and Arial Narrow. I can't help you with the first issue as I don't use ...

You can use relsize package with the command \mathlarger: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath,amssymb} \usepackage{relsize} \begin{document} \[ d'(f(x), f(y)) \leq L d(x,y),\, \mathlarger{\forall} x,y \in X \] \end{document} But if you want it monstrously big 😁😁😁😁😁 you could use \mathlarger{\mathlarger\forall}.

I found the problem. Once all the MiKTeX files are downloaded, check inside the containing folder. There will be a new identical installer. Run it and this time it will work. Just look inside the folder where you downloaded your MikTeX files, you will find the installer as setup-4.0-x64, identical to the one you downloaded from the MiKTeX page. Or in case it ...

This is a passing bug in miktex. It fails if some message should be written to the terminal which contains bytes which are invalid in utf8. In your case it is a overfull box message which contains Umlauts. The log-file (which is 8bit encoded) contains then this, and miktex is trying to write it to the terminal too: Overfull \hbox (4.07864pt too wide) in ...

Here is a solution with some simplifications, using the w columntype defined by recent versions of array and the makecell package. Note that column widths are very large for the text in cells, and I had to load geometry with option a3paper. You should see if the given dimensions are really necessary. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{romannum} \usepackage{...

Your TeXLive would more or less work as-is if you just add c:\texlive\2019\bin\win32 to the searchpath, although you would miss out on other system integration such as file associations. Or, if you run c:\texlive\bin\win32\tlaunch, it will turn your copy into a launcher-based installation, see https://www.ctan.org/pkg/tlaunch. Afterwards, you can convert ...
