No TeX Distribution found during Installation

Postby jmvegh » Mon Jul 22, 2013 10:03 pm

I downloaded the installer package, and have been running the installer, but I've been encountering problems.

The installer gets to the step where it installs MiKTeX 2.9, and I think it installed correctly (although I can't be sure as I haven't used LaTeX before). However, once I close the installer from that and click next on the main installer, it says that "No LaTeX distribution can be found" and aborts the installation. Does anyone have any advice?

I'm running a 64 bit Windows 7 computer. I don't know if that is a problem or not.

You tagged your post with LyX. Which installer did you use, are there any messages?
Does the "no LaTeX-Distribution found"-message comes from a lyx installer in any way (which one)?

I never used Lyx myself, and my MikTeX days are long gone too, but those questions might help someone with more experience in those fields.

EDIT: I just realized this is the LyX-subforum, and as i said i don't have any experience there.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
