MikTex Update

Eric Berg
Dear MikTex users:

I installed MikTex 2.9 and immediately tried to update it. There were about
25 packages I needed to update, and when I did I got a fatal error. This is
the log:

I have tried this several times, and I get the same result. Any ideas? I am
not very good with computers, and am trying to use Latex to type up a math
paper to submit to journals.

Thanks,

Eric

Re: MikTex Update

Denis José Navas Vega
Since you started installing MiKTeX, a possible practical solution for
the moment is the following:

-- Unistall
-- Install again.
-- Don't update.
-- Load the package manager and download the packages of interest.

That's all.

The problems you report has its origin in MiKTeX unistalling core
components and installing in a second update, the remaining
components. Sometimes something does not get well specified and we
encounter this problems.

In any future update I will procede, having backed up MiKTeX folders
(about four or five of them).

As far as I can see pdfclose.exe is a wrapper and is (re)created
when initexmf --mklinks is called. But for some reason the access to
pdfclose is not allowed. Can you move/rename/delete pdfclose.exe?
And if you try after the rename can you run on a command line (you
probably need admin rights)

initexmf --admin --mklinks

?
