Dear All
Recently I've installed MikTex 2.9 as support for MikTex 2.7 is no more. I feel v 2.7 was much better than v2.9. The major feature of MikTex for auto installation of packages not supported by v 2.9 with all the changes made as suggested on the user group.
May I know how to install Beamer on MikTex 2.9? I tried my level best as per the help on the internet but all in vain. Please help.
I referred following links for help
1. ... eamereasy/

2. ... eamer.html

3. ... ex-windows

None of the three method I found useful for installing beamer on MikTex 2.9. So far I was using beamer on MikTex 2.7 it was working fine, but now as I have moved to MikTex 2.9 its giving problem. Please help me to sortout this problem.

with regards

Somehow I can't comprehend the problem. Just start the MiKTeX Package Manager (MPM) and choose the beamer class for installation from the package list. But with the correct settings automatic installation during compilation should be no problem. Appropriate answers can also be found by a Forum Search. Note that there can occur problem when using TeXnicCenter as editor.

Best regards and welcome to the board

I had a similar problem as the OP. Mainly because I rarely use MiKTeX and installed it a while ago.

localghost's reply helped point me in the right direction. Unfortunately all start menu entries were removed somehow, but after half an hour of searching I discovered:

> C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\mpm.exe

This, or similar, is the updater. After launching the update process is self evident - a list of packages should appear which you can select and install.
