Cannot compile template

Postby templateuser » Sun Mar 08, 2015 2:19 am

Hi, I keep trying to use your templates but stumble upon this error:

  1. Windows API error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.
  2. C:\Users\John\Documents\Latex\MyFiles\article_1.dvi


My other files are run ok, except this. Do you have any idea what the problem might be? Btw, thanks for this great resources.

Dave

I would recommend you to try compile it with pdflatex. It works for me under windows and linux.

I have a similar problem as Dave, and I have Latex setup with Texnic Center. How do I go about setting up or using pdflatex? Thanks.

Hi,

Select the output profile LaTeX => PDF , and click on the Build icon. This should use pdflatex.

Cheers,

Surprisingly that didn’t work - I was using that setting(Latex=>PDF) initially, and it seems to work with other types of tex files except these ones on your site. However, I somehow have TexWorks installed as well (didn’t know I had it), and using it worked. Awesome templates.

Thank you for all your efforts.

That’s odd, I haven’t heard of anyone else having problems compiling templates. If you figure out what was causing the problem send me a quick email. Thanks for your comments! :)
