Hi all,

I recently had to reinstall my OS and now I'm having problems with my Texmaker installation. I'm using v4.0.4 on Windows 7.

The problem is that my bibtex file is not found. For example, my latex file is located at C:\documents\mylatexfile.tex, and my bibtex file is located at C:\research\mybibtexfile.bib. Then, in my latex file I just call:
`\bibliography{mybibtexfile}   `

I vaguely remember that previously I had modified the "bibtex" command in the Configuration window to point to the path where my bib file is located, and this worked fine, but I don't remember the syntax anymore.

I searched online high and low and couldn't find a solution (maybe I used the wrong search terms?!).

Thanks

Thanks to my backups, I found back my previous Texmaker ini file and found the solution in there. Enter in the bibtex box:

`bibtex --include-directory="C:\path_to_bib_file\" %`

Problem solved!

I must say, this is not really documented very well.
