After getting a new computer, I installed TL 2019 and was trying it on a sample file. Got the following messages:
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.20 (TeX Live 2019/W32TeX) (preloaded format=pdflatex)
restricted \write18 enabled.
kpathsea: Running mktexfmt pdflatex.fmt
The command name is C:\texlive\2019\bin\win32\mktexfmt
I can't find the format file `pdflatex.fmt'!
Indded there is no pdflatex.fmt there, nor is there a mktexformat.exe. I have installed TeX many times on many computers and never run into this. I thought all necessary .fmt files were generated as part of the installation program. What am I supposed to do now?
