1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I am trying to type my assignment using latex but im having problem. i first installed the WinEdt 5.6 and i tried typing into it and everything works except, when i press the Latex button at the top (in order to see my document whether its right or wrong) it gives an error, it says:
Error Launching Console Application LaTeX ...
Command Line: latex.exe --src "Demo.tex"

The system cannot find the file specified.

2. Relevant equations

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you

Re: LaTeX

Are you using the MikTeX installation? Try going through this page on the WinEdt site (WinEdt and TeX): [Broken]
