I'm not sure where to have put this question I hope it is in the right place. I have big problem with LaTeX..

I have been writing a document for a while and recently when I click the build and view button it shows this error

[DocOpen(%bm.pdf")][FileOPen(%bm.pdf)]
Cannot execute the command

nothing comes up.

Restarting doesn't help. Also when I have managed to see a pdf, (don't know how), it doesn't shows changes I made? I thought I had it when I looked at http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?t=42360

but I have followed the advice and no luck

Help!
 
I've used latex but am no expert, so I'm unsure - but it looks as though on that thread they are suggesting there is a problem with texnic communicating with acrobat. Have you tried a different compiler (e.g. winEdit) for a short-term fix?

It turned out that I had written \usepackage{math} instead of \usepackage{amsmath} I had no idea guessing the names of packages could actually have such an effect...
