* if TL 09 is installated on Win 7 from DVD, as a regular user (i.e. not
installing with admin rights) is it then correct that TL should not add
itself to the Windows menu (or what ever it is called in W7)?
A student did the above, which now makes TL management tedious (a
student does not know about the tlmgr --gui commandline feature, at
least not a Windows user)
* TeXWorks/SyncTeX does apparently not like non ascii letters in paths.
I have an example file (test.text) lying in a folder with the name
Then compilation works fine, but SyncTeX in the PDF viewer fails.
Renaming the dir to
then synctex in the viewer works fine.
This was tested on WinXP and verified on Win 7.
* I was wondering, will the TL manager opdate TeXWorks when a new
version arrives? I noticed that apparently MikTeX ships with a newer
TeXWorks version (at least it had a scripts menu item, which my test
version does not have)
