Problem downloading Latex-Pdf on MikTeX default installation on a Windows server
|Reported by:||goranw||Owned by:||chenca|
I installed MikTeX 2.6 on Windows Server 2003, and using trac2latex for downloading a wiki-page as Latex-pdf didn't work out-of-the box. (The browser tried to load the PDF-file until it timed out.) My test page was a copy of http://code.chenca.org/wiki/trac2latex .
The problem was due to the fact that MikTeX will, by default, halt and put up a dialog box whenever an additional TeX package needs to be installed.
I solved this by manually calling pdflatex on the trac2latex .tex-output, and when the dialog box first appeared, unchecking the "always ask before downloading" checkbox...
