Hi,

I just installed Latex on my computer but cannot get it to work. I think it has to do with the TEX-distribution

I have defined the profiles LaTex=>DVI, pdf and PS but when I try to use the configuration wizzard, I cannot find the full path directory, where the executable (latex,tex, ect) of my TeX-distribution are located.

I tried the following paths but did not get any where:

C:\Program Files\MiKTex 2.7\
C:\Program Files\TeXnic Center\
C:\Document and Settings\Jean-Guy\My Documents\LaTex
C:\Program Files\MiKTek2.7\bin

When I try the above paths, the configuration wizzard gives the following message:

The application 'LaTex'has not been found in the directory of your TEX-distribution.

Please enter the directory where the executable file (tex.exe, latex.exe, ect) are located as your distribution's directory.
