### Generation of Bibliography Control File fails

Hi there!

I'm putting this in the TeX Live forum because I am guessing this might be a package incompatibility issue.

I'm using TeXmaker with TeX Live 2013 on Windows 7, fully updated. I have looked around a lot for this issue but couldn't find a working fix. I'm using a minimal example I found online - it is behaving the same way in my main document, thus I think it is a valid example and a fix would work on all documents on my machine.

my build command is this:
pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.texbiber %pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

Minimal (not) working example:
\listfiles\documentclass{article}\usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex} \usepackage{filecontents}\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}@misc{A01,   author = {Author, A.},   year = {2001},   title = {Alpha},}\end{filecontents*} \addbibresource{\jobname.bib} \begin{document}   Some text \autocite{A01}.    \printbibliography\end{document}[/latex] debug.blg[code=none][0] Config.pm:318> INFO - This is Biber 1.8[0] Config.pm:321> INFO - Logfile is 'debug.blg'[74] biber-MSWIN:272> INFO - === %a %b %e, %Y, %H:%M:%S[383] Utils.pm:185> ERROR - Cannot find control file 'debug.bcf'! - did you pass the "backend=biber" option to BibLaTeX?[383] Biber.pm:109> INFO - ERRORS: 1

The log file "debug.log" is attached.

Argh! Right after posting I found the failure. TeXmaker lets you do stuff in a build directory. Biber doesn't know that.

Changing the TeXmaker command to this works.
pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.texbiber build/%pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

I guess I'm letting this thread stay here for other people to find.
