    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

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Re: LaTeX

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

    Thank you.
    I looked at that link and i think the problem is that i have to install the Tex Live system first. right?
