Texniccenter and Windows 7, 64-bit

Postby rasole » Tue Feb 09, 2010 9:25 pm

Hi there,

I have recently changed from Vista 32bit to Windows 64bit, and Texniccenter is behaving very strange. When I e.g. write

  1. \documentclass[twocolumn]{article}
  2.  
  3. \title{This is the title}
  4. \begin{document}
  5. \maketitle
  6. \end{document}


it cannot open the compiled pdf-file and gives the warning [DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]. Nothing is wrong with the code, as it works perfectly on Vista 32bit. Do I need to install some other packages to the new OS? Thanks

Post your log file and check the path to your viewer in the texniccenter build profile

It seems that the error occurs, when I add some usepackages like e.g. \usepackage{lipsum} to generate latin text. Is it an issue with MikTeX 2.8?

Try to compile on the command line and see what happens.

I have no idea how to do that? Can you provide some documentation?

Open the command prompt (google if you don't know how to do this) then navigate to the directory where your tex file is contained in by using cd directory then type latex filename.tex

Hm. Shouldn't you actually know how to handle your operating system? I rarely use Windows and my current system³ (XP) will be the last one. But magicmoose seemed to point you in the right direction.

I also use Win7 64 bit, but it works well.

My installation steps:

1. I need PSTricks so my conversion path must be LaTeX->PS->PDF.
Because of that, I install Active Perl 32 bit or Strawberry Perl 32 bit.
Unless you want to manually create output profile LaTeX->PS->PDF in TeXnicCenter later, don't install Perl 64 bit.

2. Install ghostscript 32 bit rather than 64 bit.

3. Install Adobe Acrobat Reader.

4. Install the newest Miktex.

5. Install TeXnicCenter, just follow the wizard.
You must set the compiler path to C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.8\miktex\bin

Done.


I hope it is usefull.


Thanks.

I don't see the correlation between pstricks and the necessity of a Perl interpreter when using this build profile.

I am sorry. You are right.

I installed Perl for pdfcrop.pl which I sometimes use to crop pdf.
It is irrelevant, so just skip the step 1.



Thank you.
