dvipdfm, type 3 fonts included

Hi,

on 2014-04-11 I installed the current MiKTeX 2.9 64-bit
(basic-miktex-2.9.5105-x64.exe). My operating system is Windows 7 Home
Premium 64 bit with SP 1.

I convert my dvi files via dvipdfm to pdf. Unfortunately, the pdf
quality of my documents is very poor because the pdf contains type 3
fonts. I know this is a common problem and I have already solved it
previously (many years ago, in times of MS-DOS). But with my previous
installation (basic-miktex-2.9.4521.exe) of August 2012 there were
none of these problems. Perhaps another important warning: When
running LaTeX, the system complains that some kanji.map file is
missing. I have no idea for what that could be necessary (I write in
German).

If you need more information please tell me.

Cheers, Olaf

Ask for help : Package titlesec affects the settings of tocloft

Hello, everyone.

 I am facing a problem when formatting my report edited by Latex.

I wanto to do the following two formatting

1.  to supress the line break after chapter title, for example
   Chapter 1 Exercise A
  to replace the default one
  Chapter 1
    Exercise  A

2. to append "Appendix x........#"' to TOC, replacing default "x........#"

I use package titlesec to do format 1 and use package tocloft to do format
2.
But I found the two package affect each other.
I can not get the two format at the same time.

Anyone can help me some, thanks in advance.

The following is the my minimal example.

\documentclass[a4paper,openany]{book}

\usepackage{tocloft}

\usepackage{titlesec}

\usepackage{nonumonpart}   %dont display page number on part cover page

rebuild formats | miktex config utility failed?

Running 2.9 under Windows 7. 64-bit, installed for user only (me, who is 
also sysadmin for this computer). Applied some recent updates, and ran 
through my usual sequence of 'Refresh FNDB' and 'Update Formats'. First 
step ran fine, but now, when I try to update formats, I get an error 
message: windows pops up saying

'The MikTeX configuration utility failed. Do you want to see the 
transcript?'

if I click 'yes', then I'm presented with the following:

initexmf.EXE: The operation failed for some reason.
initexmf.EXE: Data: 
C:\Users\egc\Desktop\egc\text\MikTeX\miktex\bin\x64\miktex-makefmt.exe

Any suggestions? Known issues? I'm asking because the involved machine 
is one out of 5 different machines I run MikTeX from, and before I 
'update' them, want to get some sense of whether or not this is an 
'issue', or a 'one-off' on this particular machine.

Thanks in advance...

Installation in Windows 8

When trying to install MiKTeX on my Windows 8 machine I get the message "This app can't run on your pc". I feel
like this must be caused by some kind of simple problem but unfortunately I have been unable to solve it. I
hope someone can help me out.

MiKTeX 2.9 Installation fails

On my Windows 7 64-bit PC and Windows 8.1 64-bit laptop, MiKTeX 2.9 fails to
install. I downloaded the latest version of the 32-bit installer, but when
the process is almost complete an error message pops up:

"The operation could not be completed for the following reason:
The operation failed for some reason.

Details: C:\MiKTeX\miktex/bin/initexmf.exe"

I have tried both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, both produce similar error
messages. I have attached the log file from the setup. I simply do not
understand why MiKTeX does not install.

Package update failure

My MikTeX installation did "package maintenance", because I used a
particular style file for the first time.  It was looking for
paralist.sty, and it went to
http://mirrors.rit.edu/CTAN/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/paralist.cab.

The response was an HTTP 404.

I went to the above site.  "paralist.tar.lzma" is present, but
"paralist.cab" is not.

This seems to mean that there is a meta-data error (looking up whether
one is fetching a .cab file or a .tar.lzma file) somewhere or that a
mirror is out-of-synch.

I understand what has happened, but I have no idea who to inform of this
error.

Can someone give me a hint as to who to tell?
