To whom it may concern, How are you? I'm in the process of writing my math-work (grad. level), and would like to use Latex. I do not know where to start, what to do, but have seen the beauty of the program. What should I download, what to pay, etc., etc.. Please, advice, Kind regards Jens Martin Berling jens@... -- http://tug.org/protext/

Does proTEXt / TEX Collection DVD 2012 work with Windows 8 64-bit?
2012-11-19 15:17:16 GMT
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have a question you hopefully can answer:
Does the TEX Collection DVD 2012 also with Windows 8 64-bit?
I use proTEXt. Will this work after installation?
Thank you very much!
Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
ich habe eine Frage, die Sie hoffentlich beantworten können:
Funktioniert die TEX Collection DVD 2012 auch mit dem Betriebssystem Windows 8 64-bit?
Ich benutze proTEXt. Wird dies nach einer Installation funktionieren?
Mit freundlichen Grüßen

thomas -- last night's mirror from tug.org into ctan gave us an apparently new "protext.exe" without deleting what was there. so we now have -rw-
r--r--. 1 ctan 34 1223854878 2011-07-14 23:11 ProTeXt-3.0-070811.exe -rw- r--r--. 1 ctan 34 57 2011-07-14 23:11 ProTeXt-3.0-070811.exe.md5 -rw- r--r--. 1 ctan 34 1223854878 2011-07-14 00:00 protext.exe it seems likely that the "new" file is just a copy of 3.0, size and md5sum are the same. can you explain how this happened. while an extra gbyte and a bit is not a "big deal" nowadays, there's going to be a lot of spurious network traffic because of this new file. incidentally, there is a dead link from your name under "credits" in http://tug.org/protext/ Robin Fairbairns For the CTAN team -- http://tug.org/protext/
Can't Uninstall Previous ProTeXt Installation
2011-11-01 13:00:00 GMT
I inadvertently installed ProTeXt into the "Downloads" folder of my Windows 7 machine. Wanting to uninstall it and reinstall it in the "Program Files" folder, I found that ProTeXt was not listed among the programs I could uninstall--presumably because it isn't in the "Program Files" folder!
Simply moving from the "Downloads" folder to the "Program Files" folder the ProTeXt folder produced by the installation presumably wouldn't do the trick; I assume--but don't know, because I'm computer illiterate--that this would leave unhelpful things in the registry and path.
How can I uninstall?
Incidentally, the file I used for installation was the third of the three on the Purdue mirror site. The first and third files are listed as being the same size, but the third is called simple Protext.exe, whereas the first one has some numbers added to that name, and I see nothing that tells one how to choose between them.
Information regarding PROTEXT2.X and 3.X - ECCN
2011-10-17 13:50:01 GMT
I am working on an internal request for your application PROTEXT2.X and 3.X . In order to attend this request, I need to obtain the Export Control Classification Number (ECCN). Export controls prohibit or restrict the export or re-export of certain specific products, technologies and services from the United States to designated countries. We inquiring if there is an export control classification number (ECCN) for the mentioned software.
In the event you don't have an ECCN, could please fill out and sign the attached document? That way we will be able to self-classify internally.
Thank you in advance!

"View DVI" error message
2011-10-12 17:43:55 GMT
I have only just started using ProText so I admit that this problem is probably of my own doing. In TexMakerX 2.1 (svn1774) on a WindowsXP machine when I click on the "View DVI" icon, I receive an error message. This is the message: MiKTeX Problem Report Message: Windows API error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.
