Helpful messages for multi-round updates

At http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/200709/miktex-package-update-
select-all-grayed-out, I describe a problem of not being able to Select All 
to update packages.  Apparently, this is because the update may need to be 
repeated to (i) update MiKTeX itself, (ii) delete packages, and (iii) 
update packages as per user designation.

One respondent suggested that I post a suggestion here: It would be helpful 
if user messages are displayed if (i) or (ii) are occurring, which prevents 
(iii) [that is, until (i) and (ii) are finished].

scrbook issue with tex4ht

Hi,

When using the koma-script classes like scrbook, htlatex file produces
the following error:

(C:\Users\david\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9\tex\generic\tex4ht\scrbook.4ht
! Missing \endcsname inserted.

Any idea how this can be fixed? Looking around it looks like there's a
patch I think, but it hasn't been incorporated into miktex.

Regards,
--David.

problem with font

Hello ;

I'm writing my thesis using the latest Miktex version (2.9). It works 
without any problem in my office computer, but in my laptop, I get the 
following error:

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file rtcxi): Font rtcxi at 720 not found
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

I searched the required file (rtcxi.pfb) and I found it, so I do not 
understand why he can not find it.

I tried also to update miktex, but it did not work.

Does anyone have an idea ?

Thanks.

Revising the article on updating MiKTeX

Hello everyone,

The article on MiKTex's website on how to update[1] lacks a description 
for Windows 8.
The article says "To start the wizard, click "MiKTeX Update" in the 
Windows start menu.", but I couldn't find that term via the Windows 8 
app search function ([Win]+[Q]).
It's only called "Update (Admin)" (a version without "(Admin)" also exists).

A sentence like "If you use Windows 8, search via [Win]+[Q] or on the 
start screen for 'Update (Admin)'" would be worth adding in my opinion.

Strangely enough, I also had to run the updater twice to make the 
updater show no updatable package on the third run. When I first 
executed it, the button "Select all" and "Deselect all" were also grayed 
out.

Regards,
ComFreek

MikTeX does not clean up \jobname.fls when both -recorder and -aux-directory options are given

Well, almost everything is in the subject. The \jobname.fls file is
created in the main file directory, not in the auxiliary directory,
neither in the output directory.

This behaviour is undocumented --- or better said, non conformant to
documentation --- and not desirable, as the whole purpose of an aux
directory is to avoid contaminating the main dir with temporary files.

Any feedback on why this issue is there, and whether it will remain is
welcome.

VBR,
   Vincent.

Local repository

I recently installed MikTeX (full) on a new machine. I started by 
downloading files to a local repository from the network then the 
installer used that repository to do the actual system install/build.

Is there any good reason to keep the local repository and/or is there 
any harm in deleting it? Its size is approximately 1.66GB.

How to install Thai fonts?

I'm using MiKTeK2.9, Winedt5.5 and Windows7. What is the easiest way to
install the Thai fonts so that I can use the package thai babel? 

The error that I got is No file LTHnorasi.fd. 
LaTeX Error: This NFSS system isn't set up properly.

Thanks in advance.

Installation of the mathtools package -- mathtools.sty --

Hello Miketex-users,

I have updated my Miketex to 2.9 since I had to do an update on my windows
xp system to win 7. 

When opening my tex file via miketex all the missing packages are getting
installed - so far so good. The installation process stops and gives out the
following error:

! LaTeX Error: File `mathtools.sty' not found.

I tried to install the mh paket (where the mathtools are included) with the
package manager (admin) but the repository doesn't seem to match:

package repository:
http://mirror.switch.ch/ftp/mirror/tex/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/
lightweight database digest: 0a861b02c073fb392639e6c96c383ad9

Also I have tried to Refresh die FNDB over the Settings Option

Is there any ther option to install  the mathtools.sty. Does anyone know how
I can get this file directly installed via win7?

I would be very happy for an answer,

Thanks,

economergy
