When you've already installed MikTeX and following up on this, TeXNicCenter, then TeXNic will ask you to find the full path of MikTeX distribution, did you locate it?
Besides, when writing a document, a basic preamble is needed, do you have it?
I just installed miktex 2.7 and texnic center, but when i try to write and then build the file to see the output it gives me the error "file `name.tex`" not found.
it gives me always the same error, no matter what is typed in.
is an installation problem?
what should i do about it?
or is it due to Vista?
yes. it is all ok with the full path of the distribution, i set that up right at the beginning. And i also wrote the body correctly, with preamble and everything, I even copied and paste my supervisors latex file, which gives me no error in my other computer. I copied another file that i wrote which runs fine in the other computer. but it gives me always the same error "file'name.tex' "not found. I need to use beamer for a presentation on wednesday and i`m lost!
