Hello Jonathan,
Sorry, for my late response. I was busy testing what you suggested. The
following command runs and rebuilds some formats but not the XeTeX one:
fmtutil --byfmt xetex
Any ideas? Of course it produces some error messages regarding XeTeX, mostly
about xetex.ini.

Best Regards
Ali Majdzadeh Kohbanani
