### Configuration of TeXnicCenter with MiKTeX

I just installed TeXnicCenter on a different computer. I don't know how to answer:

"Enter the full path of the directory, where the executables, (latex, tex, etc) of your TEX distribution are located"

I have MiKTeX installed on my computer, so I just don't know the path to type in. I seem to remember it being something about a "bin".

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Just look into the (standard) installation folder of your system partition. It depends a little bit on the MiKTeX system installed. Here is an example for MikTeX 2.6 in the standard folder.
`C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.6\MiKTeX\bin`

You have to add the name of the binary that is to be executed to give TeXnicCenter the full path.
`C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.6\MiKTeX\bin\latex.exeC:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.6\MiKTeX\bin\latex.exeC:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.6\MiKTeX\bin\pdflatex.exeC:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.6\MiKTeX\bin\bibtex.exeC:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.6\MiKTeX\bin\makeindex.exe`

Just to mention a few. Note that there are more binaries required like dvips. You can find them in the same path.
