Re: Unable to uninstall MikTex in Vista

If you want to know what command is run to uninstall, you can get it from the registry. In regedit navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\MiKTeX 2.7 (it might be HKEY_CURRENT_USER , depending how you installed). The UninstallString contains the command you...

Re: Access problems in Vista

Note that it says SystemAdmin: NO But I am an administrator on this machine. Is this a bug or did I do something wrong? You didn't do anything wrong and it's not a bug. It's "a feature" of UAC in Vista. Programs are by default run unprivileged even if your account in an admin one. Go figu...

Re: How to control JPG compression ratio with ps2pdf

Recently, I asked the very same question . It seems that this just can't be done with GhostScript at all (ps2pdf is just a wrapper around gs). As a side note, I also tried using pdflatex to generate a PDF directly, but then the high-quality JPG images I have get recompressed to worse quality, for a ...

Re: Windows 7 x64 installation directory trouble

The problems you describe are not specific to 64-bit Windows but to UAC. Writing to "Program Files" requires admin privileges, but starting with Vista most programs are executed unelevated, even if your user account belongs to admin group. For "compatibility" Windows does some au...

Re: Two installations

If you want TeX Live to work properly, you have make sure that it is found on the path before MiKTeX binaries. This is normally taken care of by the installer (if you installed TL after MiKTeX). Otherwise do it manually and edit user or system PATH evironment variable.

Cheers,

Re: LaTeX / MS Word interoperability?

Right now it looks as though the best way is simply to paste latex input in word, and search and replace for tags. Ouch! I wouldn't consider that a manageable solution at all. That's an awful lot of manual work on each conversion. Only masochists should apply ;) For conversion business I have exper...

Re: LaTeX / MS Word interoperability?

It all depends on what sort of documents you will need to create/edit (e.g with math, Word editable graphics/diagrams?), if you need to collaborate on documents with your colleagues (and hence frequently round trip between Word and LaTeX) and what is "a manageable amount of hassle" for you...

Re: LaTex to compile from a Matlab command

I decided to write a GUI in Matlab that creates a .tex file which is then compiled by LEd. This works so far, it evens open LEd when I run the Matlab program but you still have to manually press the compile icon. Why do you need to start LEd for compilation? Just call (pdf)latex directly from your ...

Re: how to produce multiple files in one step?

so the batch file takes "del" to be equivalent to "rm" and produces the error message above. It certainly does not do such a thing. You simply must have left 'rm' somewhere in your script. Check it carefully and you will find it. P.S. Now it's 2 hours for us, 3 hours for him, 2 ...

Any ideas?

Well, 'rm' is a Unix command and therefore is not recognized as the error message clearly says. You need to familiarise yourself with the basic commands and their syntax or won't make much progress with batch scripting.
