Installing TeXnicCenter

Postby Colin Bowles » Tue Feb 02, 2016 3:03 pm

I have just installed Texniccenter and when I load it it asks me for the path where the executables of the Tex distribution are. I am using MikTex and have tried every possible option but Texniccenter doesn't acccept any of them.

I am using Windows 10 and Texniccenter 2.9.

I have tried the following path c\users\colin\appdata\roaming\miktex and all the combinations of all the subdirectories in miktex but none are accepted by Texniccenter.

Any suggestions please?

Hi Colin,

I don't have MiKTeX, as I use TeX Live. However, I guess you can find the path when you look for a file latex.exe or pdflatex.exe with the Windows explorer. The default path may be C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin.
