### LaTeX Class Issue?

Hello all,

I've been using LaTex for over a year now in order to create a unique resume. Recently I bought a new machine and for some reason my LaTeX document keeps giving me errors when trying to compile. When I try to compile it through TeXworks with MiKTeX it responds with "! LaTeX Error: File res.cls' not found.". If I try to use TeXmaker is just says "Log File not found !". My code worked perfectly fine about 2 or 3 months ago but now when I actually need my resume it will not compile. Does anyone have any experience with this situation? Please don't make me go to Word for a resume Below I have attached my code to see if anything is wrong with it. Thank you!

Welcome to the forum!

I get the same error if I use this minimal working example:

\documentclass{res}\begin{document}\end{document}

which is a very much shorted version of your example that starts with

\documentclass[line, 10pt]{res}

The message is quite clear IMHO:

! LaTeX Error: File res.cls' not found.

A short search on CTAN (the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network) gives me this: res which maybe the class you need.

Obviously this class is not part of TeX Live 2016 (otherwise I wouldn't have gotten the same error. It doesn't seem to be part of MiKTeX either. If I had to guess why I'd think the reason is the license of the class (nosell).

But you can always install the class yourself.

Regards
Clemens

By the way, that res class is nearly 30 years old! Designed in 1989, adapted to LaTeX 2e 2001...
