I recently installed the TeXLive 2007 distribution (on an XP machine) as well as following the instructions for installing proTeXt per "The Quickest Way to a TeX System." This included downloading and installing Ghostscript and GSview. Now I'm ready to follow the instructions on page 11 of the manual: 1. "Start TeXnicCenter, and compose your document." Here I loaded a TeX file which had previously been compiled using PCTeX. 2. "Select and Output Profile..." I selected TeX => DVI since this is the mode I've operated in for at least 20 years. (I'm not a LaTeX user.) 3. "Click on the icon for Build current file... Do this as many times as needed to resolve all cross references..." I click on the icon and the *only* thing that occurs is the message ------Output Profile: TeX => DVI ----- appears on the Build tab at the bottom of the screen. There are no error messages or anything. Just in case it compiled and I didn't know it, I clicked on the View Output icon and the message "Cannot execute the command" appears.
What am I missing or not doing? I know I have some cross references that need to be resolved, but I did not get a single error message. Again, nothing happened. Please advise. _______________________________________________ protext mailing list http://tug.org/protext/
