MikTeX does not start in administrator mode

Postby pireddag » Mon Feb 25, 2019 1:33 pm

Dear all,
MikTeX does not start in administrator mode. I get an error message (attached), which is not informative. How can I debug this problem? What should I check?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

perhaps have a look at the MiKTeX issue tracker.

You can also add a new issue there.

Thanks for the answer. As far as I see, to post there I need to determine that the crash I see is a bug of MikTeX, and I am not sure that it is; it might be caused by the configuration of the office computer, with network drives. If I were able to get some information on the crash, it would help: maybe how to get that information is a Windows question rather than a MikTeX question.

The following worked (hopefully I kept track correctly of what I did)

1) Install MikTeX for me only (not for all users)
2) Choose as installation directory C:\Users\%myself\AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX 2.9

C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9 did not work and also installation for all users did not work. If it keeps working I will not investigate in more detail.
