Trying to install WinTex

  1. Apr 4, 2007 #1
    I installed MikTex 2.5 all right I think but the wizard for WinTex doesn't work. It keeps telling me I need to locate an Installroot file or something like that. :frown:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    There seems to be a general problem with WinTex:

    My guess is that you have to tell WinTex where the MikTex folder is.
    Try this path:
    C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.5\miktex\bin

    Alternatively, you can install another latex editor:

    Just in case you have already installed Adobe Reader 8.0 and you
    are using TexnicCenter, there is a bug which can be repaired:
