so i've been trying to get latex. i downloaded a couple of latex editors, LEd and Texmaker. Both programs have given me messages. LEd:The system cannot find the path specified. 'latex.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Texmaker: Error: could not start the command i don't think two programs would both be in very simple error, so i'm wondering if i'm supposed to have an actual Tex program or something, and the editor is an intermediate program? i don't know. any help? btw, both sites have horrible documentation, otherwise i would have found the problem there. i doubt i can be the only one to have this problem. thanks!
