### [Bug] The latest version of Dvipdfmx shifts the caption of EPS figures

Hi,

Yesterday  I installed the latest version of Miktex. I tried to generate
PDF file from my latex document, but there's some misalignment in the
caption and figures. The caption has been shifted to a higher position than
normal, thus it is overlapped with the figure.

My DVI file looks perfect.
If I use DVI --> PS -->  PDF, this PDF file also looks exactly like the DVI
file.
The problem only happens when I use dvipdfmx to convert DVI --> PDF.

This problem does not happen when I use the old version
(basic-miktex-2.9.4521.exe).

Does anyone have the same problem ?

Thank you.
Huy Tran.

### problems running pdftex on fresh install of mikTex

Hello,

I am new to MikTex, and just installed it on windows7 64-bit.

I added the d:\miktex\miktex\bin\x64 folder to my path, and created the following sample latex file:

% hello.tex

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

Hello World!

\end{document}

When I run pdftex hello.tex, I get some odd errors:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (MiKTeX 2.9 64-bit) (preloaded format=pdftex 2014.2.6)

### Package Manager Problem

I just wanted to draw a TikZ picture. This requires pgf, tikz and some
to make these packages available to all users.

I startedt the MiKTex 2.9 Package Manager (Admin) and selected the first
required package "pgf". When I started "install". The Pakcage Manager
did this:

starting package maintenance...
installation directory: "C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9"

### \input|"command"

Is the syntax \input|"command" supported? (MiKTeX 2.9)
If so, can you provide an example that works? (Windows 7.)

Thanks,

### Automatic uninstallation of Miktex (and maybe also silent)

Hi everybody,

automatic and silent installation of miktex basic is not a problem but I need also an automatic and silent uninstallation.

If I use "C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\internal\uninstall.exe" or
"C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\internal\uninstall-admin.exe" i always have to click
manually "remove"
within the window which will appear when one of the uninstaller is used.

Anybody has a clue to this automatically as the installation is done?

Best regards

### Latexmk fails to run because of old File::Path dependency

Hey all,

I've just been struggling with an issue where the bundled version of Perl
doesn't include the correct version of File::Path.  I get this message when
trying to run latexmk.exe:

File::Path version 2.08 required--this is only version 1.08 at
d:\MikTex\scripts\latexmk\perl\latexmk.pl line 121.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at d:\MikTex\scripts\latexmk\perl\
latexmk.pl line 121.

An important point to note, this problem was masked for a long time by the
fact that I had Strawberry Perl installed (though apparently it only has
that affect when installed via Chocolatey).

What I'm wondering is if anybody knows how to manually upgrade this
dependency, or even if they know how the included perl within miktex works
and where that dependency lives...

Thanks!

### dvipdfmx

The configuration file for this program specifies the map file kanjix.map
which isn't available in MiKTeX.

### stix update

The recent update of the stix package supports LaTeX/pdfLaTeX; however
I found I had to manually enable the map file stix.map.

### Failed installation of MikTeX

Hi all,
installation fails repeatedly (I had the same with a previous version
2.9.4813).
The attached jpg-file shows both the screen message and the last part of
the logfile.
Does anyone have any idea on why this fails? And more importantly, how I
can avoid this problem.
I am using Windows 7, Home Premium with Service Pack 1.
Thanks,

Rob Rodenburg
