MikTeX does not start in administrator mode

The following worked (hopefully I kept track correctly of what I did) 1) Install MikTeX for me only (not for all users) 2) Choose as installation directory C:\Users\%myself\AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX 2.9 C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9 did not work and also installation for all users did not work. If...

MikTeX does not start in administrator mode

Thanks for the answer. As far as I see, to post there I need to determine that the crash I see is a bug of MikTeX, and I am not sure that it is; it might be caused by the configuration of the office computer, with network drives. If I were able to get some information on the crash, it would help: ma...

MikTeX does not start in administrator mode

Dear all,
MikTeX does not start in administrator mode. I get an error message (attached), which is not informative. How can I debug this problem? What should I check?

Thanks in advance!

Equation is a LaTeX environment (or amsmath if it re-defined by that). Since it will be first parsed by LaTeX and LaTeX can kno...

The different things to press when an error happens, h or q , or s , or x are all documented. In the TeXbook. When you are interacting, you are interacting with TeX. I looked at an electronic copy which I found on ctex (I do not have a printed copy), and the reference I found is in chapter 6, pages...

And I also get the story of quitting with x in the aux file error. https://chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/47556959#47556959 Probably the critical thing is to substitute S for the X that I am using. If I do like I do (press X) then I have a corrupt aux file, that TeX will try to read again...

LaTeX is not throwing an error because there is a blank line. It is TeX. I get that. The point that I am raising is that the error thrown by TeX and the consequent fix in the LaTeX code is clear only for the people that know TeX; LaTeX itself could intervene and issue an error message - labelling i...

I think it is all about reading the aux file. TeX, as an engine, was developed in the last 30 to 40 years. Computing power and memory was very scarce back then. This is fair. I know it because when I was writing my Laurea thesis (1996/97) the system administrator refused me 80 Mb in hard drive quot...

I realize now that this section of the forum is about "Wishes" for the forum, and not "Wishes" for LaTeX.

Perhaps LaTeX/General would be a better section???
