### My roots are gone

Hi all,

This morning, I updated the MiKTeX packages. And now, I can't typeset
roots anymore! If I compile this document:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
$\sqrt[3]{x^3}=x$
\end{document}

all I get is "= x", without the cubic root. And furthermore the log file
has no errors or warnings. Any suggestion?

Best regards,

Jose Carlos Santos

### package repository not online

I have installed MiKTeX 2.9 (64bit) on a windows 7 machine.
When I try to update the packages the list of servers does not appear and I
receive the error message included at the end of this post.
The predefined server, or the nearest server is not online, at least from
the point of view of MikTeX, but it does not allow change it.
It happens with both Package Manager and Package Manager (admin).
I even put the Package Manager (admin) in the whitelist of programs allowed
to bypass the firewall, with no avail. The problem persists.
¿Does anybody know a solution to this problem?
The error information is the following:

### SOLVED: Problem(s) with Miktex 2.9

Ok,
This morning I was able to perform the following steps from the command prompt
in Windows Vista with no reported errors:

C:\Users\name>mpm
--set-repository=http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/sites/ctan.org/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/
C:\Users\name>mpm --update-db
C:\Users\name>mpm --install=<package> (several packages were installed successfully)

Thanks to the Miktex team for their "weekend work" --- good job

### Problem(s) with Miktex 2.9

I have been working several hours, over a period of 2 days, trying to use the
update program (with admin privileges) in Miktex-2.9.5105 (windows Vista 32-bit
platform).  I am never able to get access to a repository. I also tried to use
mtm from the command prompt (running as administrator) in an attempt to register
a new repository --- unsuccessful. I have attempted to handle this on a laptop
with a Windows 8.1 (64-bit) installation of the same version of Miktex --- again
unsuccessful. I also installed Miktex in different directories on the same
computer -- again unsuccessful.

I have now come to the conclusion that there is some basic problem (handling
repositories) with this latest update OR no repositories are available (over the
past few days).

Does anyone have an explanation as to why it is impossible to change
repositories? Is it possible to resort to an earlier release of Miktex? And
finally, is there a workaround that "really does work" (none of those I found on
the WWW worked for me) for changing to a repository that can be used for updates.

I have been using Miktex for sometime and this is the first instance of this
type of problem (at least for me). Any help on this very frustrating problem
would be greatly appreciated.

### (no subject)

Hi

I want to install miltex on my laptop. I have downloaded the installer and
when I tried to run it I can't find any download source. I tried with 32
and 64 full versions and I obtained the same results. I tried one more time
with a basic version  and is the same there is not any download source.  I
appreciate some recomendations.

### Problem with experimental update (17/06/15)

Hi all,

yesterday I saw that there was a new miktex update. When I tried to
update only one server was available.
I know this is strange but I did it. I must admit it's my fault.

The first list of updated packages only allowed me to charge
packages, miktex (or windows) complains saying that certain link to
program "copystart.exe" is not correct. And now, neither miktex-update
nor miktex package manager work.

There's no problem with pdflatex and I can work with it. The problem
seems to be only with some miktex binaries.

Do you know if it's possible to repair the system without installing
miktex again?

Thank you,

Ignasi

### georgian in miktex

Hello.
The firs of all , thank you for a great TeX distro :).
I have one small problem.
I did run update(admin). MikTeX has recent babel-georgian, georgian(I'm author of Georgian packages)
and hyph-utf8 packages.

Everything worked fine, but there is one problem. There is no georgian language entry in languages.ini
file and formats are not updated
thess lines :

[georgian]
lefthyphenmin=2
righthyphenmin=2
patterns=hyph-ka.pat.txt
hyphenation=hyph-ka.hyp.txt

and updateformat commands?

I do instruct users of GeoTeX, but i will be nice to make work out of box :)

Thanks again

Levan

### packaging lualatex-platform

Dear All,

As explained in a message to luatex <at> tug.org[1], I'm looking for a way to
index (in luaotfload) fonts registered in Windows but not in
C:\\Windows\Fonts. The best way to do this appears to be the package
lualatex-platform[2]. It is written in C with lua bindings, and it will
be packaged into TeXLive for WIN32. It is possible to package it for
MikTeX too?

Thank you very much,
--
