Have you installed a TeX distribution and the LaTeX packages of that distribution?

Have you tried menu entry Help → Check LaTeX Installation? Can you show us the output of the check run?

It seems there is no pdflatex installed, because the output of "where pdflatex" and "pdflatex.exe -version" are empty.

DVI Viewer (view-dvi): "C:\Users\12679\AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX\miktex\bin\x64\yap.exe" -1 -s @?"c:ame "?am.dvi"

Have you installed MiKTeX? Unfortunately I cannot help repairing MiKTeX, because I'm not using it.
