Permissions to install packages for non-admin users

I installed miktek in my lab for assistants to use. We keep hitting snags
because users are not administrators. I constantly have to run in and
install packages. Can there be a fix for this? Either do like R so nonadmin
users have easy avenues to install in private space or create way for me to
allow all users to have packages downloaded without admin account.

Re: Welcome to the "MiKTeX-Users" mailing list

Hi! Today I tried to compile my thesis, but after running the latex command, dvipdfm simply didn't want to
collaborate with me; it just removed the output file.
I then ran dvipdfm in verbose mode using the -vv flag. Well, that gave me the error "Couldn't open font map
file "kanjix.map"", which I found out with a quick Google search was due a bug fixed four days ago, see http://sourceforge.net/p/miktex/bugs/2286/.
I updated MikTeX (and all the packages) and the problem was done... I thought. Now, instead, it gives me this
message and nothing more: "<FONTMAP:dvipdfm.map>Multiple dvi filenames?". Without the -vv option, it
just quits and removes the output file. Thew file *is* compilable, and I know this because I actually
compiled it on my Macbook just to make sure. All the packages needed are also installed (correctly).
Any ideas?

Regards,
Markus

no .ps or .eps figure rendering after last update

So, applied the 24 January updates. All went well (no errors), but 
*major* compilation issue. No .eps or .ps figure renders. I usually 
compile using the .tex -> .dvi -> .ps -> .pdf sequence. But now...

1\ using TeXifY, no .eps figures are included in the .dvi file,

2\ and as such, nothing shows up in the (ultimately) generated .pdf file.

Everything else seems fine, but this is a pretty big, and fundamental 
issue.

Problem with tugboat-plain installation

I work with Kile 3 under MikTeX on a MS Win 7 system.

I installed the packages "tugboat" and "tugboat-plain" in MikTeX.

I want to run tex command on a file named corkpaper.tex which starts

pgf is shown as of version 3.0.0 in the package manager, but used in version 2.10

Dear all,

I recently have the problem that some of my .tex files do not compile 
anymore because of version conflicts after I updated my MiKTeX 
distribution. It seems that the package manager shows the pgf package as 
of version 3.0.0, but the logfiles created when compiling my .tex files 
show the line "Package: pgf 2008/01/15 v2.10 (rcs-revision 1.12)". I 
already tried to uninstall and re-install the pgf package using the 
package manager, but that did not solve the problem. How can I fix this?

Best regards,

   Thomas

ps2pdf working in DOS console, but not in MSYS console

Dear all,

I have MiKTeX 2.9 64bit installed on Windows7.

When I open a cmd.exe DOS console, and I type

   ps2pdf --help

then I get the usual output with exit status 0

When I open a bash MSYS console (with MSYS 64bit edition), and I type
the same command, then I get no output at all and exit status is 255.

So there is something in the MSYS environment preventing ps2pdf to work.

I checked with MSYS that Ghostscript is in the path (if I type:

   gswin64c --help

then I get the normal output), and I also added some export GS
environment variable pointing at gswin64c.exe, but this does not help.

I am at the end of my wits, any help is welcome...

   Vincent.

faulty exe file ??

Hello all,
when producing some sheet music with PMX, I ran across
a stupid problem: a needed program  file, musixflx.exe
(date 13-26-08,49,665 bytes), doesn't respond correctly;
in fact, even when run nakedly under Windows 7,
 the latter answers
"musixfkx.exe funktioniert nicht mehr aufgrund eines Problems
   und wird geschlossen. Sie werden benachrichtigt,
   wenn eine Lösung verfügbar ist"
   (ha,ha, thanks for the meaningful help, Windows!)

Does anybody have a musixflx.exe file (perhaps
more recent) that works properly and can send one to me?
Or conversely: am I on a wrong track ? Thanks a lot.

(using my APS adress is the simplest snd safest way).

ccn.

Thanks a lot, Ulrike! I was just too ignorant to know that these
.exe files do exactly what is given in the Win 7 links which I had
missed in the Win 7 desk top.

Now I can begin sleuthing for the problems I still have with the
sheet music setting programs. A wild hunch is that
etex doesn't operate properly in pmxab.exe even though mikTeX
provides etex by default these days.

problem with installation of MikTeX 2.9 on Windows 7 ?

Due to a hard crash in an old Win XP I had to reinstall
MikTeX 2.9 from scratch under Windows 7 (32 bit).

The official installation procedure seems to have worked
properly, and the MikTeX software was installed  in
C:\Programs\Miktex29 as expected.

However, in the  start icon of Win 7 (under "all programs")
there appeared no link whatsoever for MikTeX 2.9  !

???

Even though it looks as if MikTeX seems to work properly
in normal use, this doesn't look quite right; e.g. I cannot run
any of the MikTeX settings, e.g. updates,or refreshing the
File Name Data Base doesn't operate (or at least I don't
know hows to call it).

In addition, my music program pmxab
[ ' C\Programs\Miktex29\localmiktex\miktex\bin\pmxab ' for long ]
stops on the second pass, saying that the TeX result of the first pass
cannnot be understood properly.

Probably  will have to run deeper into what's going on
in the various PMXprograms; but first I want to make sure
that I am not missing anything in the complete
MikTeX File Name Data  Base .

Can anybody have a suggestion of what/if I am doing something wrong?
In particular: Ulrike Fischer ?? In the past, I have been seeing
