I am trying to switch to LaTeX after struggling with MS Word to the point of despair. Unfortunately, things aren't off to a great start. I want to build a resume and I found a template but when I try to compile it I get the following error even with another very simple "first LaTeX program" I also found online. I installed MikTeX first so it should be working. What is wrong? I saved the file then clicked "Quick Build"

Thanks!

It would seem that your quick build setup does not find the pdflatex command. Make sure that your editor knows where to find the binaries of MikTeX by properly setting the path variable or directing it directly to the binaries in the quick build setup.

I had the same problem with the couple Texmaker-MikTex. Since I can barely use LaTex, I asked a wizard and he told me: "Switch to TeXstudio". I did as he said and everything worked fine. LaTex isn't that simple.
