This may be a question more properly directed to the WinEdt/MikTeX mailing
list, but that list is apparently restricted and my post to it was rejected.
Off and on for the past couple of weeks, and today many times, when I try to
process a file (even containing just one word), MikTeX complains
"LateX failed to create a dvi file. For possible
explanations, start the command from the command prompt or read the log
Well, in these situations, LaTeX also fails to create a log file, so there's
nothing to learn there. Moreover, I cannot figure what command to run from
the command prompt in order to catch any output. The MiKTeX command
certainly does not work. I have used LaTeX for years and MiKTeX for a
number of months, but never seen this error.
Have any of you had this experience? Any suggestions? .......Edgar
P.S. I am on a PC running XP pro.
