FYI: pdflatex hangs

Oliver Kopp
Hi,

I am continuously updating my MiKTeX installation. On one machine, pdflatex
just hangs after the start (pdflatex test.tex). Independent if the

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18 (MiKTeX 2.9.6350)

If I start it without filename, the usual prompt comes up:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18 (MiKTeX 2.9.6350)
**

The "old" trick

initexmf --mklinks --force

solved the issue for the first time, but subsequent calls of pdflatex did
not succeed.

Any ideas (besides reinstalling)?

Cheers,

Oliver
