Biber on current MiKTeX

Postby DarkRuler » Sat Mar 23, 2013 2:07 pm

Hey guys!

I am trying to use biblatex and Biber for citation. I installed MiKTeX 2.9/32bit (at first I tried 64 bit, but I have read that Biber is not included in x64). Now I want to run a simple file with one citation, but the problem is I get a PDF without the bibliography. Is there something wrong with the following? My problem is I don't get a single error message in the console.

  1. \documentclass[11pt]{scrartcl}
  3. \usepackage[
  4. backend=biber,
  5. style=authoryear, %% Zitierstil (siehe Dokumentation)
  6. natbib=true, %% Bereitstellen von natbib-kompatiblen Zitierkommandos
  7. hyperref=true, %% hyperref-Paket verwenden, um Links zu erstellen
  8. ]{biblatex}
  10. \addbibresource{literatur.bib}
  12. \begin{document}
  13. Test
  14. \parencite{berger}
  16. \printbibliography
  17. \end{document}

The "literatur.bib":

  1. % This file was created with JabRef 2.9.2.
  2. % Encoding: Cp1252
  4. @BOOK{berger,
  5. title = {Der demographische Wandel : Chancen fuer die Neuordnung der Geschlechterverhaeltnisse},
  6. publisher = {Campus-Verl},
  7. year = {2006},
  8. author = {Berger, Peter A.},
  9. address = {Frankfurt am Main ua},
  10. language = {ger},
  11. shorttitle = {Der demographische Wandel}
  12. }

And you have run Biber on the *.aux file in between? If you don't use an editor with built-in automatism you have to do that manually. The biblatex package won't do that for you. Tools like arara or latexmk could be helpful then.

Thanks for your answer, you solved my problem :) I opended the file in Texmaker, set biber for the biblatex command and ran biber. Now it works, but the process is not automated yet. I will try to do that some other time.
