Dear Venugopal,

Thank you for the information. I tried mktexslr, eventhough it showed the same 

But today I the same worked, I dont know what happened in between. 

Now it shows the colortbl.sty is to be installed for xcolor package.

I will try to find the colortbl.sty at tug.org

With regards,

Read the book "Formatting Information" by Peter Flynn (beginlatex.pdf). It has 
details how to install packages.

have you updated with texslr after installing the packages?
