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?

babel update

Hello,

When I update my MiKTeX 2.9, it still offers version 3.8m of the babel
package, while there have been newer releases on CTAN for several months.
Is it an intended behavior? or is there sth wrong in the config of my
Package Manager (can't find one, though...). This is perhaps linked to this
mail: [
https://sourceforge.net/p/miktex/mailman/miktex-users/?viewmonth=201304&viewday=2
].

(I'm specially interested in the languages located in
/macros/latex/contrib/babel-contrib, which don't seem to be updated either.)

Thanks
Mathieu

Was kann ich dagegen tun?

Instead of reinstalling TNC, you could also have run Build / Define
output profiles and click the wizard button.

Problem with auto-pst-pdf (dvips-related: couldn't find header file)

Dear MikTeX users,

I'm using MikTeX 2.9 on Windows XP. When I compile on the pdfTeX engine a document containing PSTricks code
by using the auto-pst-pdf package my system replies with the following message:

dvips: ! Couldn't find header file: <jobname>-autopp.out.ps

Everything else seems to be working fine, and this message started to show after my computer froze while
compiling a document. It may so happen that my dvips-related files are corrupted for that reason, but I'm
not sure as to what's going on here. 

I could uninstall and re-install my MikTeX system, but it's a fairly full installation that I have and
before taking such a radical approach I'd like to ask if somebody could provide any hints on an alternative
-- such as what files I should replace and where to locate them (if they're available at some repository).

Thanks so much in advance,

Marcos

I'm Stymied

Hi:

I just installed MikTex 2.9 and TexnicCenter for windows-64 and when I try
to compile I get the following message: pdflatex> (Fatal format file error;
I'm stymied)

I tried re-building the pdflatex format file as I saw in a few blogs and I
also updated MikTex, but none of the later worked.

Can anyone help me with this, please?

Thanks

Javier

Do you really expect to be able to write a file when you are in C:/program files?

Move your jpg to some other folder and call bmeps there.

bmeps.exe broken ?


bmeps.exe does not work in 2.9.5105
I tried both the 32- and 64-bit versions.

Has it worked for you?

miktex in commercial project

Hey,

I was trying to find anwser on the internet but I haven't no lucky. I only
found this:  "To the best of my knowledge, all software in this distribution
is freely redistributable (libre, that is, not necessarily gratis), within
the Free Software Foundation's definition and Debian Free Software
Guidelines. If you find any non-free files included, please contact me.".
But this not saying much and I don't know if I can use this in project for
commercial purporses?

Thx for response
