Can not compile the tex file..



Hi! everyone, I have problem in running a tex file. I have downloaded miktex and winedit. When I run a simle tex file in winedit, it gives the error: TeXify failed to create a dvi file. For possible explanation start the Command Prompt or read the log file (captured by winedit during the execution)....", but I can't able to reda the log file as icon of log file in that winedit is disabled. What would be the cause for that? I have running that in Windows XP, and same is happening in windows 98. In both the computer we have properly set the path as it is mention.

Have you tried their other suggestion? Open a Command window, go to the
folder where your .tex file is, and process it with the tex or latex
command (you don't say if you are using plain TeX or LaTeX).

Without more information it is not possible to say.

Both those operating systems are obsolete, although I believe there are 
many people still using them. Have you considered upgrading to something 
else?
