Dear Sirs
What path should I enter for the configuration wizard of texniccenter when it asks me to enter path where executables are located?
Thank you

The location where you installed TeX Live or MikTeX.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

thank you

I have MikTex path but it is a folder named MikTex with a lot of options beneath it, such as "bin" which is also a folder with a huge amount of options, one of them named miktex-bibtex.

Executable are also called binaries. They should be in the bin folder. So just enter the full MiKTeX path including the binary folder.

Dear Sir

the path you suggested, the bin path, is a folder with a huge amount of files under it. I simply do not know which path to prescribe to the directory, which file to choose from the bin folder.
My apologies for having troubled you

Enter the path like you see it, such as:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\

Just that path, not a file in the directory.

Dear Mr Stephan

I'm truly sorry but when I enter the path you suggested it gives me the error message: "Latex is not found in this directory"
Despite the fact that latex is installed in the miktex I downloaded
Thank you so much for the help

This path was a sample, but it depends on your specific installation.

Is MiKTeX in "Program Files (x86)" oder in "Program Files"? C: oder D:? Only you can see. Important is, to locate and to use it, and to have \bin\ at the end.
