Problem using BibLaTex

Postby Jaraqui » Thu Jun 20, 2013 8:30 pm


I am trying to compile the first biblatex example. ... uction.tex

Theses examples are part of the main documentation

http://mirror.informatik.uni-mannheim.d ... blatex.pdf

The output file that must be generated is the following: ... uction.pdf

But, trying to get the same output file in my notebook, something went wrong.

Compiling and running it in my TexWorks the output files are the ones attached to this post which are called texworks.pdf and texworks_log.log

Trying in my TeXnicCenter no pdf file is generated. The texnic_log.log is attached in this post too.

Using TexMaker occurred the same result I got using TeXnicCenter.

Can anybody help me to put this to work in my environment?

ps1: csquotes.sty as well as biblatex.sty are already present in my C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9 subdirectories.
ps2: I did run more than twice (expecting some positive result as we do sometimes with BiBTeX).

Thanks in advance
Best Regards

Hi, all those editors should do exactly the same. When beginning with LaTeX I advice you to use Texworks.

The code example you linked loads biblatex saying 'use biber as the processor'.
Have a look in your log-file, it gives you alle the information you need by telling you: Please (re)run Biber on the file

In Texworks you need to switch to the program biber (right of the green GO-triangle). If it is not there, you have to manually add it. How this can be done has been explained several times here and many more times using google.

After running biber, you have to do one ore two pdflatex runs again.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
