TeXnicCenter woes

Postby mayub » Sat Apr 24, 2010 2:07 am

I can't get my pdf updated because I get the following error. Everything worked well sometime ago, but today when I add content to a project file, I get the following error. When I make a new project there is no problem building an output in pdf. But the moment I copy and paste something from the old project, the error shows up again. Totally frustrated and am badly in need of help to save my pld project which was compiling perfectly ....


Couldn't find the input index file C:\PATH\NAME or C:\PATH\NAME.idx

USAGE: C:\PROGRAM FILES\MIKTEX 2.8\MIKTEX\BIN\MAKEINDEX.EXE
LATEX-RESULT: 0 ERRORS, 0 WARNINGS, 0 BAD BOX, 0 PAGES.

I have solved my problem after many hours. The reason the updated content in TexnicCenter was not updated in pdf was due to the following error:
"GUI framework cannot be initialized"

LaTeX terminates with "GUI framework cannot be initialized" if invoked from TeXnicCenter. This happens when a missing package needs to be installed and the pop-up window cannot be displayed.

Remedy: start MiKTeX Options and choose either Yes or No (but not "Ask me first") for the option "Install missing packages on-the-fly".

I had faced the same problem with the TexnicCenter

Then I compiled it with WinEdt and all the missing packages were instlled.

But WinEdt had some other problems interms of figure compitability. So I switched back to TexnicCenter, and it was now able to compile the file.

This special issue with MiKTeX 2.8 should disappear with the new TeXnicCenter 2 (currently in alpha 3 state). A full MiKTeX installation is always worth considering.
