Hello Shristi,

The message seems to indicate that your installation of MiKTeX didn't
installation, and therefore MiKTeX didn't do the setup necessary as part of
the installation.

Probably, you should delete the directory where it was installed (if
uninstall through Programs is not available), and try to install it again,
paying close attention to see if the installation completes.

best regards,

Graham
